These photographs were made on the Mani Peninsula at the southern tip of the Greek mainland. It's an ancient area of which's roots can be traced back to Homer's "The Iliad". I approached making the work by letting go of any preconceived ideas that I may have about the place, allowing my subconscious mind to guide the image making process. I found this particularly liberating, each time I went out with my camera each venture became an almost meditative ritual, allowing myself to be present in my body in these new surroundings. The resulting photographs are a record of these meditations on a foreign landscape.
