NAXOS IN 35 MM

Around Naxos island, Greece, with my little black Rollei 35 LED and IlFord HP5 Plus films. Greek beers and Aegean sun did the rest. “YAMAS!”

NAXOS AS CALIFORNIA IN THE SEVENTIES

A series of b&w shots taken in Naxos, Cyclades, Greece, during the summers of 2015 and 2016 that remind me of California in the Seventies . No details reveal the real location of the set; just lines, contrast and shadows from a possible past. [Shots taken with Canon EOS 1100D, Ricoh GX100 and Olympus E-P2]

A NEW F/50 PROJECT

land-sea_shapes-of-continuity_02

This short “summer series” – seven shots taken in Agios Prokopios, Naxos Island, Cyclades, during a period of 1 hour with a 50 mm lens – helped me explore the lines/feel of continuity between land and sea. I was probably looking for a personal sense of space where the horizon shapes a continuity across the shots. I was looking for a sense of surprise too – catching the amazing moment when the eyes alight on the water over the dunes. There definitely is a feeling of relief and amusement in each image to the extent that the horizon is “broken” or “interrupted” by humans: their familiar presence dares to leave the beach and embrace the water unconditionally.

STRAIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE MIDDLE OF AEGEAN SEA

LOCATION: Naxos, Greece, my favorite Island. CAMERA: Olympus E-P2. There I spent lovely times with my E-P2. I’ve taken some unobtrusive shots in a taverna on the paralia an other walking around Chora; other shots – some macro pics – were taken in Agios Prokopios Cape with temperatures above 45°. E-P2 was a camera designed especially for straight photography: E-P2 is a camera always ready to take just a couple of shots (in my experience the first one is the good one). So, if you look for a professional compact system, E-P2 is your camera, now cheap enough and powerful at the same time.
