Photographer's Note

There are many passageways called 'Abbara' in Mardin that they do connect the narrow cobble stones ways to each other. THis kind of passageways you can see also in many mediterranean countries such Italy and Malta.

Mardin crowned with a castle overlooks the vast roasted Mesopotamian plains extending to Syria, and the honey-coloured stone houses that trip down the side of the hillside give it something of the feel of old Jerusalem.
Whatever the time of the year, the interplay of the light and stone is enchanting.
Another draw is the mosaic of people. Sizeable Yezidi, Christian and Syrian settlements among others add to the population mix, giving the area a refreshing burst of multiculturalism.
