Children of the Light: the Eternal Youth of Greek Beauty
Dedicated to her country’s youth and filled with purifying Greek light, Calliope’s latest book conjures a Greece of mystifying beauty, where the past and the present, the imaginary and the real, magically coexist.

Photographed in many locations across the country, from its many islands to the mountainous mainland, ‘Children of the Light’ is Calliope’s second book, and a product of sheer love and self-motivation. A seasoned fashion photographer, Calliope decided to steer away from commercial photography a few years ago, in order to focus more on personal projects, like her recent photography exhibition at Zoumboulakis Galleries in Athens.

I dedicated this book to the Greek youth, because they are the country’s future.

Published by international publishing house Skira in 2014, Children of the Light is Calliope’s visual paean to Greek beauty and the country’s unique, penetrating light: through iconic landscapes, character-full garments and of course beautiful, young Greek faces, she manages to capture an aspect of local identity that is far from nostalgic or stereotypical, whilst also poetically blending the country’s diverse past with its ever-changing present.
