I’ve wanted to visit Chichen Itza since I was about 9 years-old. I remember watching a documentary about the Maya and I was hooked ever since. Last week Iana and I took our first real vacation in 4 years and we got a lot of time relaxing at a beach in Cancún, but the highlight of the trip for me was walking around that ancient site, filled with astronomical knowledge, mythology and wisdom carved in stone. I got a chance to start a new project there, creating the first images of a series inspired by ethnic fashion and ancient monuments, which I’ll publish here soon.

The Blue Dot Ensemble: Sari Gelin

Here is our interpretation of a song called Sari Gelin, present in Turkish, Persian, Armenian and Azerbaijani traditions. On this performance we created a mix of influences from all these cultures, including singing in both Turkish and Farsi and dance inspired by Azerbaijani, Persian and Armenian styles.
