An endless expanse of shimmering waters paired with unmatched Greek hospitality awaits visitors to the islands of the Aegean Sea. Each island is home to a unique spirit and mythology. From Patmos (a favorite of Aga Khan) to Hydra (which captivated Henry Miller, Leonard Cohen, and Sophia Loren), the islands are imbued with a seductive sense of history, tradition, and adventure. Several films over the decades have been filmed on them, including Boy on a Dolphin (1957) on Hydra, The Big Blue (1988) on Amorgos, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005) on Santorini. Sources of inspiration for millennia, the ancient ruins, cliffside monasteries, and volcanic rims are all can’t-miss sights.
Venturing on an Odyssey of their own, the author and the photographer boarded a traditional Greek sailboat. They set out to capture the calming atmosphere, quintessential characters, and breathtaking architecture of these gems of the Aegean. A spectacular journey was re-created in the pages of Greek Islands.
