Volakas, Falakro mountain, Greece
I made a connection with the villagers, explaining what I hoped to achieve and gaining their acceptance of my presence. On the third day, deep in the forest, I experienced some of the harshest conditions I had ever photographed in at -15˚c and with a snow storm raging. These dramatic conditions served well as a backdrop against which to portray the ancient celebrations of the villagers in their ritualistic costumes.

بنيتُ علاقةً وثيقة مع أهالي القرية وفسّرتُ لهم ما الذي أتمنّى تحقيقه من وجودي بينهم واكتسبتُ موافقتهم على ذلك. وفيما كنّا متوغّلين في الغابة خلال اليوم الثالث من رحلتي، اختبرتُ أقسى ظروف الحياة على الإطلاق في مسيرتي التصويريّة، إذ تدنّت درجة الحرارة لتبلغ 15 درجة مئوية تحت الصفر واحتدمت قوّة العاصفة الثلجيّة. وقد شكّلت الظروف القاسية التي اختبرتُها الخلفيّة المثاليّة لتصوير الاحتفالات القديمة التي ما زال القرويّون يحتفلون بها في أزيائهم الشعائرية.
