Kariye museum or the Church of St. Saviour in Chora is the most interesting Byzantine church in Istanbul, after the Haghia Sophia that is. Also check the Pammakaristos gallery. For that reason I gave it a gallery of it’s own. It contains both frescoes and mosaics (1315-1321), restored by the Byzantine Institute of America. Chora means “in the country”, because the monastery it was attached to stood outside the Constantian walls, later when the Theodosian walls were erected the name remained. Symbolicaly the name received the implication of referring to “Christ”, him being “the land of the Living”. Adapted from Sumner-Boyd and Freely; Strolling through Istanbul, a very good book.
You may want to compare the pictures with those of Cappadocia Churches at Göreme Open Air Museum If you want to see old Roman mosaics, you should visit my Antakya Museum gallery. Through the "topics" option on Pbase I try and show more museums, check the Link to the museum that I took pictures of.
Light conditions were very weird, I extensively changed the pictures, trying to get close to what I considered the true colour. In some cases I changed that, because I found that to improve the clarity of some pictures. For those interested: I used a Nikon 70-200 VR for close-ups, and found it a very good combination. Still, in some cases I overestimated the steadiness of my hand, shooting at 200 mm (with a D70 that comes to 300) and a 1/20 of a second.

KARİYE KİLİSESİ

Kariye Müzesi diğer adıyla Chora St. Saviour Kilisesi, Ayasofya’dan sonra İstanbul’daki en ilginç Bizans kilisesidir. Bu nedenle, onun için ayrı bir galeri oluşturdum. Kilise, hem duvar resimleri hem de mozaikleri (1315-1321) içerir, bunlar Bizans Amerikan Enstitüsü tarafından restore edilmiştir. Chora “ülkenin içinde” anlamına gelir; bunun nedeni kilisenin bağl ı bulunduğu manastırın Konstantin duvarlarının dışında kalmasıdır. Sonradan Theodosian duvarları yapılmış olsa da isim aynı kalmıştır. İsim sembolik olarak “yaşayanların toprağı” olması ile sembolik olarak “İsa”yla bağlantılı bir anlam kazanmıştır. Çok güzel bir kitap olan “Sumner-Boyd and Freely; Strolling Through İstanbul”dan uyarlandı.

Resimleri, Göreme Açık Hava Müzesi'ndeki Kapadokya Kiliseleriyle karşılaştırmak isteyebilirsiniz. Eski Roma mozaiklerini görmek isterseniz, Antakya Müzesi galerimi ziyaret edebilirsiniz.


Kilisede ışıklandırma garipti. Doğru olduğunu düşündüğüme yakın renkleri elde etmeye çalışırken, resimleri pek çok kere değiştirdim. Bazı durumlarda, bazı resimlerin netliğini arttırmak için değişiklikler yaptım . İlgilenenler için: yakın çekimlerde Nikon 70-200 VR kullandım ve çok iyi bir bileşim elde ettim. Yine de, bazı durumlarda, saniyenin 1/20’siyle 200 mm.den çekerek (300’e gelen bir D70’le) elimin sabitliğini abarttım.
