Plate 42, 18x27
These young people of Crete were more than part-time dancers. They were threads, ever so strong, that were deeply woven into the tapestry that is the Greek Islands and has been part of it for untold years.
They were graceful. They glided as from above, disciplined and exact in each step, guided by the thousand-year-old need to be Greek, to tell the Greek story over and over from before time began on this island suspended in Paradise.
Crete is a most modern society, and yet this experience was of a very different world, suspended in an azure sea, beyond sound and conflict.
