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!”
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]
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.
