Photographer's Note

Rising steeply over the mesopotamian plains, Mardin is a beautiful town that sometimes looks like an open air museum.

Fascinating architecture consisting of heavily decorated stonework cascading from the hilltop, with most buildings using the beige colored limestone rock which has been mined for centuries in quarries around the area.

As you may have noticed, the subject was backlit and his face would have been difficult to get details from, but thanks to the mattress he was transporting on his donkey, the light was reflected, bouncing back on the pale surface.

A lucky shot with only a few seconds to manage the settings and to frame, as I heard the donkey approaching at the last moment.
