SIFNOS, CYCLADES - WRITING WITH LIGHT

November 04, 2023  •  14 Comments

October, 2023

I’ve always been inspired by the Cyclades.

Writing with light? Let’s go to the Greek roots of the word photography - φωτός (phōtós), genitive of φῶς (phōs), "light" and γραφή (graphé)  writing - Photography -  Φωτογραφία.

How to explain the feeling I had of elation during my recent trip to Sifnos? Maybe Henri Cartier-Bresson, who’d photographed the island back in 1961 felt the same way? This is how he describes a photograph: 

“A photograph is neither taken or seized by force. It offers itself up. It is the photo that takes you. One must not take photos.”
