The Greek Islands

When I went to Greece for the first time, to the village of Olympos on the island of Karpathos—the villagers still used candles and oil lamps to light their homes and shops. The atmosphere at night was biblical. Whether by day or night, the way of life had not changed since Antiquity… Today the Greek way of life is not entirely gone but its survival is precarious at best. These photographs are my nostalgic tribute to a world that has almost disappeared.
