Photographer's Note

Peak experiences are often fleeting moments that occur very rapidly as a result of drugs, meditation, intense pleasure, euphoria, orgasm or other self-realisation methods. For many people these experiences are once in a lifetime and the individual will spend the rest of their life trying to repeat it, whether consciously or unconsciously.

The experience is most often explained by a magical and philosophical perspective relating to communication with a higher power or God.

I use this term for horse game which is called Jereed, or “çavgan,” is a traditional game which has been played by Turks for many centuries. Turks brought this horse-riding game with them in their journey from Central Asia to Anatolia. For Turks, the horse was both sacred and indispensable. All the days of their lives were spent in the company of horses.
