Water

Resistance

Crete. The birthplace of Zeus, the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean and an island that boasts a wealth of landscapes from sandy beaches to the White Mountains.

The Minoans made their home here around 2600 to 1100 BC and it has been fought over by a multitude of invading armies including the Romans, Byzantines and the Ottomans.

The Cretans are a proud people that still place value on family, tradition…and water.

These photographs are my interpretation of the relationship the Cretans have had with water, other civilisations and the ever present unwanted ‘gifts’ of discarded tourist detritus (carrier bags), in modern day Chania.

My aging mobile phone has given me its last hazy images.
