My dear friends,

on May 22, I have my first personal exhibition in Istanbul, in Sismanoglio Megaro, in the Greek Consulate.
It is a very important moment for me, as this is my first attempt of connecting my painful past as a descendant of refugee family from Asia Minor with my healing present, supported by beautiful Turkish friends. The exhibition is about the island of Lesvos, my native island and the pictures speak about the beauty, the hidden harmony of a magnificent place, about “the poetic of stillness”, as my friend Ayse Gul Altinay described it. For me, my pictures were my shelter, a magical world created from eternity and light, where no harm could find me or the spectator. I am sharing them with you, in a moment that I already cross the line towards the “human world”, always flooded with light but vulnerable and fragile. I hope to have you with me in this passage and it will be a great pleasure to see you in my exhibition.
