This picture is so characteristic of island life in Greece that makes me smile: even though it was captured in Santorini, you can see a gathering like that outside a small church of Paros, or Sifnos, or Donoussa… People that talk with their hands, while others -in silence- keep their hands crossed as they listen […]

The first of the year Aegean blue in black and white, like a memory or a dream; the land of our imaginary truths, floating without coordinates conveniently near –as dreams and memories always are. That’s where inspiration is born, new goals take shape and new journeys are planned. The raw material of every New Year […]
