Epirus is the second album in the series on Greece. Encompassing 160 or so photographs, the camera lens of Nikos Desyllas captures the beauty of the Epirote landscape in a unique way.
"Here, today's visitors -like the travellers of bygone centuries - can study the history of Epirus and discover its footprints on the very ground they tread: Ancient ruins, Byzantine churches, stone bridges, imposing villages. They can also explore murmuring forests and woodlands, lofty mountain peaks and deep valleys forged by legendary rivers all around the marvellous Epirote landscape, in its inexhaustible diversity and richness of colour."
If you are a lover of tradition and have never had the chance to explore the mountains of Epirus, to perceive the natural beauty of the landscape and to discover, at first hand, the nobility of its people, then the photographs in this book represent both a perfect rendering as well as a consummate "guide" to the region.
