Island of the Gods

Island of the Gods


Thalori, a village on the south coast of Crete at eight hundred meters above sea level, overlooking the Sea of Libya. As a guest artist, I was at one with the elements, and with the cosmos.

I was trying to focus on the telluric and meteorological aspect. It's probably naïve, but I wanted to show how an archaic and grandiose landscape can be inhabited by the "Gods" who gave birth to our civilization.

This is the “Island of the Gods”, these are the first days of the World.

Thanks to Maria Choulaki, curator of the PhotoXenia project and to Markos Skordalakis, founder of the village of Thalori.
