Photograph from the “AERIAL ADANA” series.
"150 years ago, after the civil war in the United States prevented cotton from going to Europe, the Europeans brought the cotton to Egypt first and then to Anatolia. After the second half of the 19th century cotton production began to develop rapidly at the initiative of the British in Cukurova. In this period, which continued until the mid-1970s, Adana became the most industrialized region after the Marmara region in the agriculture-based industries such as textiles and food. In the 1980s, as the production of cotton began to lose its decisive role in the economy of the province, the agriculture diversification began, and the production of citrus fruits and greenhouses became increasingly important. Today, Çukurova meets 85 percent of Turkey's citrus production and exports.
I learned that these fields, which are located immediately next to the Mediterranean, are very valuable due to their sandy structures. Since when one talks about Cukurova, large cultivated areas come to my mind, I couldn’t do without shooting a field detail. Compositional elements that I teach in my courses, perspective, line, diagonals, texture, pattern, surface, backlight and contrast are all in this minimalist photograph." - Ali Kabas
