About this event

This exhibition looks at the changing face of travel, production and population in the Milesian landscape (around the ancient city of Miletos, today in modern Turkey) through photographs taken by various archaeologists, travellers and others working on the peninsula. Most of these photographs were not intended as ‘artistic’ images as such, although many have strong aesthetic aspects. Rather, as so often with photographs, it is through accidental serendipity, that each highlights different layers of landscape in an effort to document the speed of change on the peninsula. The aim is to encourage visitors and inhabitants to look again, protect and cherish their shared heritage, monuments and environment.


For adults. No booking necessary.
