I’ve always wanted to combine my love for photography and literature into one journey..

The thread that ties me to Odyssey  is very long. As a tribute, and with thousands of images in my head, I took up the challenge of re-telling the Odyssey, one of the most ancient examples of cultural heritage, through the most current of communication vehicles, the smartphone.

This is a contemporay odyssey that also serves as an investigation into the mediterranean identity. discovering places hitherto stored in my imagination, in search of the voices of those ancient heroes, the sound of living statues, places filled with harmonious beauty but equally filled with absolute horror.

Princess Europa, daughter of King Agenor of Tyre and mother of Minos of Crete.

A trip through a wonderful childhood dream. Where I come from:

Europa, Utopia.
