Photography, contrary to the common belief, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.     The photographs collected in this series under the title "A sense of place", suggest a journey off the beaten track where my personal exploration of my native island - Zakynthos, Greece - is shared with you in the hope to leave you with an emotional understanding of the place more than a literal sense of location.    It’s impossible to objectively describe a place or the people who live there anyway. Every adjective suggests the opposite. Every description evokes a contradiction. In trying to document a specific place, to put it into context and to show what it’s really like, photographers often do not easily escape the traps of cliché and stereotypes. I hope that I have done my best to avoid them. Since this is a personal exploration, many aspects of life in the island have been ignored.
