Photographer's Note

My father spoke Albanian, now no one in my family is left who can speak a dialect that was kept alive for 300 years, the time when my Albanian forefathers left their villages in order to keep their religion against a wave of conversion to Islam. Now the majority of Albanians are Muslim and in the mountain regions where the Turks did not make successful incursions, there are still little villages that have kept their Christian heritage. This scene is from the village of Theth, in the Shala mountains, a few hours drive on impossible mountain roads from the city of Skoder.
