Photographer's Note

Afyonkarahisar sits on top of a large promonotory of volcanic rock overlooking the city of Afyon. The rock has been fortified since the Bronze Age, when the Hittites ruled over the land. The name translates roughly to "Dark Fortress of Opium". The Afyon province was a major producer of opium during the Ottoman Empire and up until the 1960's.
