Location: Meteora, Greece, 2009.
Meteora is an area of large rock formation in central Greece. The tall, hill-like boulders look similar to the Guilin Mountains in China. It is home to the remaining six orthodox monasteries that were built in the 14th century. You may have heard the name elsewhere, perhaps the title of a song from the rock band Linkin Park. As the matter of fact, the song title was inspired by the actual Meteora.
This particular monastery in the photograph is The Holy Monastery of Roussanou. It suffered severe damage during World War 2 and was eventually became a convent in 1988. Roussanou Monastery is situated at a much lower elevation compared to the others, therefore it can benefit from the dramatic rock formations as its backdrop.

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art.
Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
