Cappadocia is in its center an eroded landscape of volcanic tuffstone. Wind and weather created rocks in the funniest shapes. For thousands of years people were digging caves into the soft tuffstone and created a unique place. The caves are cool in summer, warm and dry in winter. Beside the famous Byzantine Cave churches there are also unique architectural remains of the former Armenian and Greek Orthodox population. Since 1985 parts of Cappadocia are a UNESCO World Heritage. The main emphasis of my work is on the endangered and less known places.
