Most of our talks are documentaries on the geography, history, culture, language and economics of Turkey. We take a series of topics based on our extensive research and illustrate them using photographs taken during our many visits to Istanbul, Cappadocia (central region), and Lykia (SW region).
Talks are refreshed as we develop the content and add to the available images. While we hope that all the images in our talks reflect the skills we have learnt, only ‘Our Journey in Printing’ is primarily a presentation and discussion of individual photographs.

Each talk is detailed on its own page, with a poster and gallery
  • Talk A. Istanbul [1] & The Bosphorus
  • Talk B. Istanbul [2] & Topkapı Palace
  • Talk G. Istanbul [3] & Shopping
  • Talk L. Istanbul [4] & Fun Fare!
  • Talk C. Cappadocia – Poetry in Rocks
  • Talk D. Taste of Cappadocia & Konya to the Coast
  • Talk E. Lykia – Visiting the Past Today
  • Talk F. Lykia – Land of Mountains
  • Talk K. There be Dragons
  • Talk N. Lykia – Hidden Corners
  • Talk H. Our Journey in Printing
  • Talks J. A variety of workshops
  • Talks M. Several miscellaneous short presentations

The talks on Istanbul (A,B,G,L), Cappadocia (C,D), Lykia (E,F,K,N), on printing (H), and where shown in the M series are all dual authored and presented by both of us. All publicity must show both our names as presenters.
Workshops in the J series and where shown in the M series are authored and presented only by Mark.
