Cyprus September 2023

September 29, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Its been two months since my last post, and for the first time in a long time, I don't have anything to post.  I have had a lot of family over this summer and I have had fun personal stuff going on, and with the student dancers away until October, there hasn't been anyone I want to shoot.  I have been thinking about my photographic journey in Cyprus, and I definately want to think about themes for exhibitions going forward. 

So one area I could focus on is students.  When I first came to the island I met a lot of students working at coffee shops and the like and snapped them. I was amazed how the university scene in Cyprus has developed. Later I worked with students on photoshoots, sometimes for them, other times for personal work.  I also shadowed some students working as dancers in the nightclub scene.

So the sort of shots for this theme are below.

Another theme could be festivals, of which there are many all year round, centered on villages or towns, with craft stalls or products (like olives) and music and sometimes village dancing.

Before coming to Cyprus I did not do a lot of shoots outside.  In the last year, with my connection to Pera dancers, I've done quite a few outside, enough for an exhibition, with a name something like - In The Landscape.

I also shot at the market, every wednesday for a year.

And finally, maybe the biggest body of work I have, is Cosplay in Cyprus.  Serveral events and shoots with people living in Cyprus, and shoots from my official role last year at Geekfest.  Some shots are from carnival in Limassol.  As it happens Geek Fest is on again In October, find out MORE

I am not sure where this blog will be going in the future, but keep your eyes open, whatever comes, there will be decent photos.

Thanks.
