This is the last one of my recent series titled as "Aphrodisian Beauties".
Here in this picturepack, at left you see two faces from Portico Tiberius; one of the gates of Aphrodisias with faces of different citizens of the city. At left a portrait of the late Prof.Kenan Erim, I made just a few days before his unexpected death. Here he guides a group of youn business people from İstanbul through the beautiues of Aphrodisias.
Afrodisyas Güzellikleri adını verdiğim dizi'min son karesi bu.
Bu picturepackde sol tarafta Afrodisyasın antik çağ kapılarından biri olan Portico Tiberiusun üzerinde yer alan iki Afrodisyaslı suratı. Sağdaki portre ise, yaşamının otuz yılını Afrodisyasın gün ışığına çıkartılmasına adamış rahmetli Prof.Kenan Erimin beklenmedik vefatından sadece birkaç gün evvel, İstanbuldan gelmiş Gisiad üyelerine sit alanın gezidirirken çektiğim bir portresi.

Hello dear Mesut,
three fine pictures of faces combined in the same frame. I like very much the way you've combined the sharp and well illuminated portrait of the late professor with the sculptures that he knew so well. There's passion in his expression and gesture that must reflect his personality and his association with Aphrodisias. The art on the left part of the frame has been captured excellently. I like the light and contrast management and how vivid these ancient portraits look. Congratulations on this special tribute and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

This is a very fine "composite" photograph and also a very fine tribute to your good friend and archaeologist, Professor Kenan Erim. I am sure that he would be honoured to have his profile photograph mounted together with these two fine sculptures from his beloved Aphrodisias.
It is nice to see the professor captured doing what he probably did best - inspiring others about the history and archaeology of Aphrodisias - and your two photographs of sculptures from the Portico Tiberius are very well taken too.
A Very Fine Tribute, Mesut!

A great idea to combine these pictures like this, so we can see the detail of the ancient history as well as the importance of the more modern history. You have linked them together like this to create perfect harmony in this place. Really nicely done, I have really enjoyed your series on this place, about which I am really pleased to learn.
Have a great weekend

Good morning Mesut,
A very nice tribute to Prof Kenan Erim ! I like your collage of the antique heads so well sculpted and preserved next to the face of the scholar eager to present all these precious arts work !
Thanks for sharing this special post.
