“A thousand words is one photograph,  for me – a thousand photographs is one word – Cyprus”

As a young boy growing up in Cyprus my childhood was filled with beautiful landscapes drenched in the pure light from the dazzling bright skies.

The sun beaten backdrop was the canvas against which I began to notice the remarkable variety of images of the island of Aphrodite.

My archive covers the Cyprus of my youth, the trauma of war, the emerging republic and a modern EU country.

Today I return to Cyprus every few months, always with my camera in my hand. I still take pictures of the landscapes, the archaeology, the traditions, the Cypriot faces and the civilisation.

Being Cypriot-centric I take photographs of Cyprus not just with my camera but with my head and my heart too.”
