Photographer's Note

Hades (from Greek ᾍδης, Hadēs, originally Ἅιδης, Haidēs or Άΐδης, Aidēs, probably from Indo-European *n̥-wid- 'unseen'[1]) refers to the ancient Greek underworld, the abode of Hades, and to Hades in Homer referred just to the god; ᾍδου, Haidou its genitive, was an elision of "the house of Hades." Eventually, the nominative, too, came to designate the abode of the dead.

In Greek mythology, Hades and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated the Titans and claimed rulership over the universe ruling the underworld, sky, and sea, respectively. Because of his association with the underworld, Hades is often interpreted as a grim figure.

Hades was also called Pluto (from Greek Πλούτων Ploutōn), and by this name known as "the unseen one", or "the rich one". In Roman mythology, Hades/Pluto was called Dis Pater and Orcus. The corresponding Etruscan god was Aita. The symbols associated with him are The Helm of Darkness and the three-headed dog, Cerberus.

Hades Yunan mitolojisinde herkesin bilmiş olduğu 12 Olympos tanrısından biridir. 12 tanrı kendilerinden önceki titanları yendikten sonra Zeus gökyüzünün, Poseidon denizlerin, Hades ise yeraltı yani ölüler dünyasının hükümdarlığını almıştır. Yeraltı ile ilgili bir fotoğraf yüklediğim için Hades ile ilgili çok detaya inmiyorum; ancak ekstra bilgi isteyen olursa seve seve yardımcı olabilirim :). Yine de şunu belirtmek faydalı olacaktır: Yunan mitolojisinde ölümlü olan herkes Hadesin Krallığına bir gün eninde sonunda uğrar ve burada yargılanarak ödüllendirilir ya da cezalandırılır...
