Photographer's Note

On certain days, female whirling dervishes participate in the ceremony which lasts over an hour, with the sufi music as a prelude. It is extremely difficult to get permissions in order to take pictures from the balcony of the Galata Mevlevi House because the place is also a Museum. This picture was taken during the ritual, just before the dervishes started to whirl around. There's a light on the top of the picture, and it is due to the door left open.
