Photographer's Note

Moni Preveli is a monastery in the south of Crete, assumed to have been founded during the Venetian period of Cretan history, which was the 16th century.

There used to be two monasteries. Piso Moni Preveli, the upper one of them, can be found 170m above the Mediterranean shore and has been permanently inhabited by monks since 1594 at least. The monastery played a significant role for the resistance against the long lasting Turkish occupation as well as the short German occupation during WW II. Allied soldiers who could not flee from Crete in 1941 were hidden here or by the local underground.

By publishing this capture which represents the 1987 situation and has been taken on film with Canon A1, my little series from our honeymoon comes to an end. BTW: I'm still married with the same woman.
