I was born and raised on a little Greek island and my earliest and most precious memories are of long days at rocky, isolated beaches and expeditions exploring the few woods of the island.A camera never accompanied me during those moments though. Photography came much later on in my life and changed it forever. In the summer of 2008 my companion, himself a dedicated landscape photographer, taught me the basics of photography and in doing so he opened a door to a whole new way of seeing and appreciating the world around me, a new philosophy and way of life. I realized that up till then I merely glanced and never noticed, never fully grasped nature's beauty and meaning and its healing effect. Sitting behind a camera you understand your true place and significance in the grand scheme of things. A landscape is something timeless, persistent and enduring and we're mere passengers on it. Measuring your worries and anxieties against that truth you realize how small and insignificant they are. Photography became for me the means to collect experiences and memories. Sometimes I'm able to transform these experiences and memories into a photograph. Other times they just remain as images in my mind. They are equally real to me either way. Maria Kaimaki
