VOYAGE TO CYTHERA
Cythera is the imaginary island of love, as claimed in the myth of Aphrodite by Isiodus and later on in paintings and poems by artists like Jean - Antoine Watteau and Charles Baudelaire. Until today, the Voyage to Cythera has become equal to the Journey to Utopia. It is the place we are all searching for when traveling and the one we always want to return to.
These pictures are taken in several European countries during my traveling years, at the time when I myself set out on this journey to the place of utopia, as well as to my inner self. Hungary, Slovakia, Denmark, Sweden, Irland, Spain and Greece were the countries I passed by searching for this destination. However, I was about to learn that this journey has no end and Cythera is never to be found.
