Photographer's Note

Ro or Rho (Greek: Ρω) is a small Greek island in the eastern Mediterranean Sea near Kastelorizo, close to the Turkish coast. It is part of the municipality of Megísti (Kastelorizo), in the Dodecanese prefecture.

Ro has been uninhabited for most of history, except for the one Greek woman who made it famous, Despina Achladioti. Every day, Achladioti, also known as the Lady of Ro, would fly a Greek flag, clearly visible from Turkish soil, over the island, until her death in 1982.

This photo of her grave on Ro Island is dedicated to her memory.
