Photographer's Note

This was taken in a Mevlevi Ayini in CRR (Cemal Resit Rey) concert hall.

Mevlevi ayini is a religious ceremony in Mevlevi sect, with music and dance perfomed by dervishes.

A dervish first salutes the master and kisses his hand. Then starts spinning/whirling dance. As the dervish spins his soul is released and goes beyond his body. Dervish rises to a higher level and starts to fly to reach teh holy thing that we miss...

PS: Explanation in this note is not an official (if there is one) explanation of Mevlevi Ayini. It is just what i feel about it.
