Landscape Study III
Standing on the edge of known and unknown I've always been fascinated by the idea of islands as worlds apart. For this project I decided to focus on specific landscape elements: horizon, sea, ships and human traces over the land, as they all sum up my experience of contemplative observation of these greek islands through the years. My personal story behind these pictures is a coming back to places i lived ten years before during many summer trips; islands which i now visited again looking for the same feelings of drifting apart, warmth, being far away and yet in a magical place surrounded by the sea. To look at places and communities living there suggests to me a different state of mind; it has to deal with beauty, travel, discovery: could this be the essence of life? Edition of 3.
