silent video shot on iğneada sometime around january 2013. edited on november 2015. in my dream world you'll download the video file (about 1.9 GB), turn off the lights, make the video fullscreen and see it then.

according to sevan nişanyan's wonderful etymological dictionary (online at nisanyansozluk.com), the word "longoz" comes from the greek word "longos" which means "deep hole next to water". I'm not an expert on this but a "longoz forest" would have trees which have roots literally swimming in water, so you'd see their trunk coming out of the water, at least for some of the seasons. iğneada is one example of this.
during shooting, i was quite heavily influenced by (and trying to recreate a feeling of) philippe grandrieux's images.
the thanks goes to neslihan tepehan without whom the trip would have never happened.
