Artist Statement

This body of work depicts examples of purity of life in an emerging country contrasted by the deliberate efforts of its leaders to aggressively spur economic growth in order to ensure a place among the strongest nations in the world. The charms of the early days in Limassol, Cyprus, have been displaced and these vacant spaces of time and place are ignored, excessively abused and receive modest attention. Only when we stop to observe unadulterated and untainted images of the past can we begin to appreciate what humanity is searching for: a less stressful life, captured in these photographs.
