Tell the emperor, the splendid hall fell to the ground. 
Phoebus no longer has his house, nor the prophesying laurel, 
nor the speaking well. The speaking water has dried out. 
                     — Passio Artemii 96.1284.45–7, Cedrenus 1.532.8–10)
 The passage above refers to Delfi, but it fits completely also to DELOS ... Phoebus ( Apollo ) no longer has his house there, but still, there is something magical to encounter ...

The whisper of time past, but still present in the silence of the current moment ... The mythical reality of Delos is still perceptible ...

The Travel to DELOS ( Greece ) 2019  - I visited the little island of DELOS for the third time on Autumn 2019. There is a blog entry for the second travel at 2016:  DELOS 2016


This time the goal was to produce apart from the photographs, also a kind of art film documentary of the place ( you can watch this short film on the link below ).

 I was a traveler for many years. Seeking to increase my experience of the world and expand my horizons. Sometimes I also was a pilgrim, seeking to encounter the sacred in the world and redemption in my life ...

THE JOURNEY IS A KIND OF MIRROR ... It reflects who you are or it helps to find it out ... Every journey is a new door, if you dare to open it you discover a different reality, an unknown something in the world ... every journey has potentially an enormous transformative power ...


DELOS - THE SACRED ISLAND is the first part and a kind of introduction of art intended documentary of the complex geopolitical history of the Aegean Sea from Athens and Sounion to Kastelorizon and Cyprus to the East and to Kassos, Karpathos and Crete to the South. 

It is a double journey. First an itinerary in the contemporary maritime landscape of the Aegean Archipelago and second a journey in the mythical prehistory of the greek and the European culture ...

The journey begins on the island of DELOS. The mythical and geographical center of the Greek Cosmos. According to the myth, Delos is the birthplace of one of the most important gods in the Greek Pantheon, Apollo.

“Out of nowhere, Poseidon miraculously created a small island with his trident. It was named Delos, which in ancient Greek means “appearance” or “apparent.” Leto arrived on the island and gave birth to twins. First, Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, was born and then she helped her mother during the birth of the sun god Apollo.”  ( Kate Bulo, The Vintage News )

The Temple of Isis was built on a high over-looking hill at the beginning of the Roman period to venerate the familiar trinity of Isis, the Alexandrian Serapis and Anubis.
