Albania: A Homecoming
Project info

I was born in Albania. When I turned 11, we came to Greece because of the political situation that my country was going through. We started a new life here in Athens, and didn't go back for several years.

When I started photographing, the first thought that came to mind was Albania. I only had scattered memories, some old childhood pictures in black and white, and nothing else.

Then I traveled a lot and started to know my birthplace.

The first photo I shot was my old home. The house in which I spent the first years of my life. I continued my journey finding new places, new people and new habits. I started this project in 2010 and it continues. I hope that people will get to know Albania better, as I have had the chance to.
