Dasvant is a noncommercial showcase for us to exhibit the work we have shot/done/distorted. It's our turn to get behind the camera. Sorry for the the glitches and mistakes.


Dasvant is derived from the word das[u]vant in Hittite language. It means blind. We have chosen it as a title for its obvious irony and as a small tribute to the cultural heritage of the land on which we live.

cappadocia - balloons 

posted on 03.07.2012 

Cappadocia or Katpatuka meaning Land of Beautiful Horses. It has a unique landscape. The documented history of Cappadocia goes back to 4000 years ago starting with Hittites. Some caves are still in use even today.

Our intention was to shoot the sunset. But we came back with a sunrise shot instead. The balloons were completely unexpected, a total surprise. They began to rise right after the sunrise. We extended our shooting time in order to include them in the sequence.
