Once again, we are invited to discover the adventures of photographer Matt Porteous. This time, he went trekking for nine days in Crete, in the White Mountains «The Lefka Ori», with his stepfather. The result: an intimate and stunning series where the public seems to hike with a few men. It also reveals exceptional natural landscapes and a moving human story.
«Tony Blyth has been visiting the island of Crete for over 40 years, following in his father’s footsteps, who was there in May 1941 when the German invasion took place. He was very lucky to escape with his life; instead of surrendering, he went into the mountains and fought with a band of Cretan partisans.
At the age of 72, with two new ankles, Tony made the decision to take one last journey over the Mountains that have shaped his life over the last 30 years, as a tribute to the thousands of soldiers who walked this same path during the war», explains Matt Porteous.
Like a diary, the photographer tells the rest of his journey on his website and makes us appreciate his pictures even more.
