Every living soul has a place on Earth that they long to step foot on one day more that anywhere else. I have a few, like Iceland or Patagonia. One of those places has always been Greece, something about its ancient mythology and beautiful shores beckons to me in a particularly special way. Maybe it’s the magic of its rich history, or the weight of Olympus in its atmosphere, but I’ve always known I have to go if only just once.
Over the summer, for a brief day, I finally stepped on the shores of Greece for the first time on the beautiful island of Mykonos, and understood why the ancient Greeks believed in cyclopes and nymphs and sea monsters. Wandering the breathtaking shores, and getting lost in the pristine white alleys… It’s not hard to see why so many have fallen in love with this place. This photo story features some of my favourite photographs from that day.
