Photographer's Note

Professor Klaus Schmidt, a pioneer of excavations in Göbeklitepe, known as the “zero point in history” in the eastern Turkish province of Şanlıurfa, died of a heart attack.
Schmidt had been working at Göbeklitepe for 20 years for the German Archaeology Institute. Through his works, he proved that the Neolithic-age ancient site was the world’s oldest temple.

He had published books on the Göbeklitepe excavations in Turkish, German, Italian and Russian, along with countless scientific articles and work on exhibitions and conferences across the world.

This is a view he enjoyed every morning when he climbed to the excavation site.
We'll miss him much.

Göbeklitepeye ortaya çıkarıp yirmi senedir kazan ve bilim alemine kazandıran Alman Bilim İnsanı Prof.Klaus Schmidt 61 yaşında hayatını kaybetti.
Göbekliyepe tarihin "0" noktası olarak bilinmekte olup insanlık tarihinin en eski tapınağının bulunduğu yerdir.

Göbeklitepe kazıları üzerine, Türkçe, Almanca, İtalyanca ve Rusçada pek çok yayın yaptı. Dünyanın çeşitli ülkelerinde sergiler tetipledi, konferanslar verdi.

O'nu çok arayacağız...
