Feature and interview in Fotografia Magazine / by Zisis Kardianos

Seasonality is both a gift and a curse for many locations around the world where tourism is the major source of income. Such is the case of Zakynthos, a breath-taking Greek island celebrated by Italian poet Ugo Foscolo in a well-known sonet. Like most small islands, Zakynthos is not nearly as frequented in winters as it is at summers – 54 year-old photographer Zisis Kardianos, who has spent in Zakynthos most of his life, has completed a series of photos called Off Season which capture the island’s lethargy in colder, tourist shy months.
