Caravanserai - Blaine Ellis

Central Turkey

"In the tradition of sacred architecture, light has been a symbol of the transcendent, a metaphor for the unknowable. Sacred space becomes a visual theology, a sculpture in light that I then re-interpret through the medium of photography. These images in silver become a meditation that expresses man attempts at self-definition through matter, form and luminosity."

A caravansary, or khan, also known as caravansara or caravanserai in English (Persian: كاروانسرا kārvānsarā, Turkish: kervansaray) was a roadside inn where travelers could rest and recover from the day's journey. Caravansaries supported the flow of commerce, information, and people across the network of trade routes covering Asia, North Africa, and South-Eastern Europe, especially along the Silk Road.
