TITLE: "I left my heart in Milos"
Milos is probably the most visually complex island of Greece due to its volcanic origins.
The juxtaposition and the relation between the wildness of Nature levigated by an almost never ending wind, and historical places like churches, gives to the island a mystical aspect, where a bridge between the nature and what we could call the « sacred » exists and is tangible.
In this process of getting to the core of this relation, color (despite the tentation of a stereotyped White and Blu Greek image) is almost always useless.
Time seems suspended, and pictures look like they can’t be dated.
Beings appear in a sort of mystical exchange with nature and its Gods, and the majesty around them suggests that here, it has been like this for ages.
