Greek Island Paradise

Greek Island Paradise

The first and only comprehensive illustrated book on the Cyclades archipelago, portraying all the islands in all seasons.

Not a typical travel book that captures the tourist hotspots of the islands. But a book that captures the land and the people, the soul of the archipelago.

The first comprehensive illustrated book on the Cyclades archipelago, which also includes the well-known islands of Santorini, Naxos, Paros and Mykonos. The islands are currently among the trendiest travel destinations worldwide. There is no Hollywood or Instagram star who is not currently being photographed in front of the white cities of the Greek islands.

This illustrated book attempts to capture the feeling of life on the islands in an undisguised way. The book does not aim at the big tourist hotspots and Instagram shots that can be seen everywhere else, but wants to capture the Greek island world as a whole - with all its discrepancies. Lonely bays and half-ruined towns stand next to the glossy world of the rich and beautiful who spend the summer on the islands. Highlife in summer next to almost deserted streets in winter. Greek tradition next to modern mass tourism. It is precisely these discrepancies that make the volume so distinctive. In addition, each individual island has its own exciting peculiarities that are worth discovering. The volume also portrays in pictures and text local Greeks who pursue an exciting profession: The last fishermen on the island, the priest of a mountain church on Naxos, the last local beekeeper etc.

Rudi Sebastian has spent many weeks on the islands in all seasons over several years and has followed the soul of the country and its people. He has been to every single island in the region at least once, so he attaches great importance to completeness. The result is a probably unique collection of pictures that reflects island life in all its facets.

Rudi Sebastian, born in 1960 in Rüssingen in the Palatinate, has - after many years in the advertising industry - devoted himself entirely to photography, for which he has been travelling worldwide for six years. His main interest is water and landscape photography, but he has lost his heart to Greece. In 2019, teNeues published his first illustrated book "Water. A Journey of Discovery".
