  • The great defender

    The eastern city of Erzurum

    From Issue 55

    At one time all roads led to Erzurum, a key stop on a great caravan route and a strategic bastion against invasion. Today it is a remote city on Turkey’s Asian frontier with an important history crying out to be discovered. The photographer Brian McKee continues his tour of eastern Anatolia as Scott Redford leads us from Turkic citadel to Mongol minarets in part two of Cornucopia’s Beauty and the East series

  • Beauty in the Byways

    From Issue 47
  • The Tamed Hills of Alanya

    From Issue 13

    The Seljuk sultans who fell in love with Alanya and tamed its wild hillsides in the thirteenth century left a legacy of walled gardens and verdant terraces that is only now being rediscovered. Today’s landowners range from a Texan ambassador to a Turkish banana farmer. They too have fallen under Alanya’s spell. By Scott Redford. Photographs by Sigurd Kranendonk and Astrid von Schell
