Zagoria and Northern Albania is are still wild and still reasonably unspoiled areas. Unfortunately the traditional lifestyle of the People there is disappearing very fast. This collection features the people of the villages around Vikos gorge in Zagori and nearby mountains.
During the last ten years they have participated in an ethnographic research focusing on their relationship with their land and with nature done by Dr. Kalliopi Stara, Cultural Ecologist.
In September 2006 Dr. Kalliopi Stara and me visited them again having in mind the idea of a collection of their portraits. This was the beginning of this photograph collection that is continued until today”.
