Click to preview Santorini, Greece photo book

This book is a fine-art photography travelogue of a trip my wife and I made to Santorini, Greece in July 2008.

Santorini - sometimes also called Thera - is a small archipelago of volcanic islands located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast from the Greek mainland and is the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands. It has an area of about 30 sq. mi., and has a population of about 14,000. The largest towns are Fíra, Ia, and Pyrgos. Santorini was originally called Stroggili (meaning "circle" in Greek), and was a single island, until a volcano near its center erupted about 1645 BC and created a massive caldera. Numerous eruptions have occurred since then, the most recent one in 1950.

While the images assembled here fall far short of conveying a complete picture of Santorini's otherwordly preternatural beauty, if collectively they evoke in you, kind reader, even a hint of the joy and awe I felt while capturing them with my camera, my effort in producing this book will not have been made in vain. Santorini is, for me, earth's echo of divinity.
