This album is published in a larger format than the rest of the books in the series and it is on a par with the highest international production standards. The volume contains photographs from regions throughout Greece, specially selected by the photographer for their great aesthetic and artistic interest. It would make a perfect business gift for your clients, as well as generate excellent promotion for our country abroad but, above all, it is a book that all Greeks should read.
The photographs of Nikos Desyllas show a different kind of journey. We set out, devoid of pre-conceptions, to look at islands, mountain peaks, rocks,the colours of the sea and the trees. We need nothing with us on our trip. Light and colour are sufficient -our only luggage on a difficult journey over mountains, through ravines, across seas and up steep cobbled roads. The slightest movement appears to complement the landscape and its light. Even the darkness of the shuttered windows, the sunless mountain slopes and lowly workshops, last remnants of folklore and stubbornness, add their own brush strokes to the colourful canvas of this country.
Bilingual Greek English, 144 colour photographs.
