Athos reflection - A pilgrim's photographic journal

Living a life that has it’s sole purpose to achieve union with God, seems a no brainer on Mount Athos because everyone there is trying the same thing, is something as common as breathing and the pilgrim is attracted in this movement, either realizing it or not. By conforming himself to the monastic life he also starts pursuing the same goal of edification in the faith and the grace of God changes something in him. He’s not impatient anymore and the 5-6 hours night services seem short, even though a week before an hour-long service may have seemed interminable, he is getting used with silence more than noise and starts to think more about spiritual food than the gastronomical rewards of the city. Without realizing it the pilgrim is aligned in this grace-attracting environment. All starts to seem natural to him, despite the fact that his usual habitat, the noisy and secular city, has disappeared. This new rhythm of life fits him like a glove because it is what he really wants, it is what he was supposed to follow all along, but did not even knew it existed.

This is the extended edition of my photographic pilgrimage on Mount Athos, Greece, the wonderful world of Orthodox Monks.

Not much to say about me, born in Bucharest, Romania, currently residing in the United States, happily married and father of 5. This should sum it up for you.

Although photography is not my primary occupation, photography has been with me since high school and this passion never left me, taking various forms in my life.

Recently I have rekindled my love for black and white street photography and the usage of prime lenses vs. zooms.
