The second week with Charalampos Kydonakis on APAD. This week will be dedicated to his project Once upon a time on the island of Minotaur.

Crete‘s strategic location exposed the island to siege and piracy continuously during the centuries: This fact pushed local people to the mountainous interior of the island to protect themselves from the pirates’ assaults across the seaside. More or less until the 70’s that tourism appeared here, the Cretans’ character, life and customs were much more related to the mountains rather than the sea. These photos are a kind of observation at the dyadic nature of Minotaur’s island, this key-shaped mountain that was planted in the Mediterranean sea.
