Photographer's Note

The homes seen here were occupied until not so long ago. While the use of the natural land formations in Cappadocia has been used for thousands of years, these were fairly modern ones. The local population has moved due to the dangers with the deterioration of the area on the steep incline. Many of these caves were fitted with glass windows, wooden doors and electricity. The mass exodus began in the 1960s.
