Since first visiting Kythera in 1983 I've met some truely wonderful people there. We've shared great times and some allowed me to photograph them. I'm also writing my recollections of them and putting them into a book which will probably be called "The Kytherians" (which I hope I will finish one day).
See my collection of "Kytherians" here.
Back in 1989 I was invited by a friend from Kythera - Stefan Kinkele - to accompany him on a muleback journey from the Greek-Albanian border to the southern point of the Pindus range of mountains. We bought some mules in a small friendly village in Kozani and journeyed hundreds of kilometers through areas of spectacular beauty which seemed one-hundred years behind the rest of the world...

In 2006 I was invited to Bethlehem in Palestine to speak at an educational conference there. While there I shot a few hundred pictures and when the conference organisers saw them they asked me to put together an exibition, called "Sumud", arabic for "Steadfastness", which was then shown first in Bethlehem 6 months later, and since then each year in different European cities. View the Palestine pictures here.
Twenty years of photos of my favourite island, divided into categories such as architecture, landscapes, animals & insects, as well as the pictures and stories from my book "A Village on Kythera".
Berlin is full of dogs. The people there seem especially fond of them. In German, the term "Berliner Snout" is used to describe the sometimes brusque tone which the human Berliners use. They don't mean to be rude - it just seems that way to the rest of the world. Combining the dogs and the attitude in one book, I tried to capture Berlin from the perspective of the city's four-legged population.
