I initially visited Symi island in September 1998. It was my first experience of Greece. It was also my first experience of being on a small remote island. By 2003 I had moved there with my girlfriend and for the last 12 years have been obsessively photographing its unique character and natural beauty. The following images are just a few that have inspired me to stop, pause and take a picture. Shot mainly in black and white they are timeless like their subject.
