Over 18 years ago we fell in love with the beautiful village of Molyvos (Mithymna) located on the north coast of the amazing Greek island of Lesvos. The island is now the base for my photography and I hope that these pages give you some inspiration and just a small idea of why Lesvos stole our hearts.
Lesvos is the third largest of the Greek islands. It has a long and fascinating history. Despite its many attractions, it remains unchanged by mainstream tourism. It is still easy to find villages where only Greek is spoken and the tradition of welcoming strangers as best friends remain strong. Visiting Lesvos can be perilous. It will enchant and ensnare you, demanding that you return to explore further. Each visit fuels rather than satiates the passion. You will never see the rest of the world in the same way.
With beauty all around, Lesvos is paradise for the landscape photographer. We spent every summer holiday in Molyvos, falling deeper and deeper with the people and beauty of Lesvos. During the winter months in the UK, we would crave the relaxed atmosphere and scenic beauty of our ‘other home’. Every year we would buy a calendar to remind us of what we were missing. Over the years, the calendars remained the same and I started to wish for something new, something different, something that reflected more closely my memories of those fantastic summer holidays. There really was only one thing that I could do.
