Photographer's Note

The Holy mountain known as "agion oros" is an independent state within the greek territory. Located in the north of Greece it stands some 3 hours drive from the city of Thessaloniki. Accessible only to men subject to permission by the montks, it is a unique travel back into the byzantine times of the greek-orthodox church. The monastery shown, Simonos Petra, is one of the most iconic monasteries in the holy mountain built on the edge of a rock 300 above the sea level.
