What has always fascinated me in photography is the exploration of ideas and concepts that may reveal the beauty and mystery of ourselves and nature. This body of work is inspired by Greek myth and my own imagination and draws from such ideas as personification, the fractal nature of the world, the Fibonacci sequence in nature, the aliveness and inter-connectedness of life, and the dynamic balance between order and chaos.
More specifically, through close photographic observation recognisable or provoking patterns and traces may show up in images to surprise, inspire and make us wonder…
My intent, in this work, is to express the beauty, diversity and mystery of the land and sea of Greece, while creating contemplative and meditative open-ended images, that trigger our collective memory and ignite new perspectives on nature and ourselves beyond the known.
"Every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole. Each particle is a microcosm, and faithfully renders the likeness of the world." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
