The summer of 1999 was the first time I was on vacation in Astypalaia with my own camera. A gift from a relative, which although hardly impress a fourteen years old boy, it filled me with excitement because I was now able to keep “alive” the memories of the summer.
I did not let the opportunity then, and from an early age I started photographing the island, friends and everything else i appreciated that deserved to be captured on the old days analog film. But what I could not imagine those days of July, it was how many wonderful summers I had in front of me, the people who i would meet and all the great moments that i lived since then, filling not just thousands of photos, but my own life!
From that time until today, during my every return to Athens, Astypalaia was inside me more and more beautiful. So beautiful, as I want to highlight through this web-album…
