Pictures, Santorini 2012


A little village en route to the black sand beaches of the island’s south, Emporio is easy to miss. One can zoom through it without so much as a second glance, determined to reach the soaring caldera views of Oia or the flat coolness of the Aegean. This is because all Emporio has to offer is tucked behind the main, rather plan square. You have to follow very small, at times handwritten signs, to the traditional part of the village, to the original cave houses, to the big castle that has since been diced up into little dwellings. Dwellings that lie behind these beautiful doors.

More on Emporio to come, but for now, imagine what you’d find if you were to open any of these …

    What fantastic photos. I love door pictures. My father was into photography when I was younger and we had hanging in our house a photo of a door he took in Italy. I loved that photo.

    […] right direction. Then, once on track, you have to go looking for its colours (which you will mostly find on doors). You have to climb its steps and get lost in its narrow, winding paths to find the eccentric cafe […]
