In Pindus, readers experience the magic of discovering beautiful views of both natural and man-made landscapes of the central mountain range of Greece. The self-taught photographer, Dimitris Ch.Divanis (b.1971), recounts how he started spontaneously recording images of the magnificent mountain landscapes which have never, or very rarely, been featured in any publication. Over time he succeeded in creating a corpus of representative pictures that constitute a stirring chronicle; on the one hand, of destruction and absence, and on the other, of indelible beauty and splendor. As he himself writes about these mountains, »every stone up there has far more to tell us than anything we could imagine. Yet even if the nearer or slightly more distant past leaves you indifferent, seize the opportunity through these photographs to keep alive in your memory the image of a contradictory landscape which, because of the sweeping and often irreversible interventions it endures, you may not have the chance to see in this form again.«
