Photographer's Note

The town and the lake were formerly called Eğridir, a Turkish pronunciation of the town's old Greek name Akrotiri. Unfortunately, Eğridir means "it is crooked" in Turkish. Therefore, to remove the negative connotations of the name, in the 1980s the “i” and the “r” were transposed in a new official name, thus creating Eğirdir, a name that evokes spinning and flowers, although many people in Turkey still call both the town and the lake by its former name.
