Yorgos Yatromanolakis is a Greek photographer, originally from Crete. He is currently working on a project on dreamlike images of the fauna and flora of his child hood island, Crete. He explains that, for him, photography is the most direct narrative way for passing on and sharing his personal history. This project is a return to the land of is childhood rediscovered with the eye of the photographer he is today. The photos in this series enable him to merge his memories with his creativity . His images are tinted with a slightly strange, almost mystical atmosphere. This remarkable approach is certainly linked to the ambiguity of the relationship that each of us maintains with the past, childhood, and the enigmatic world of memory.
