Sunsets beyond belief
- October 2019
- This autumn a good friend and I wanted to go away to enjoy some sun, culture and nature. Athens is a great place to enjoy all of this. Every day we hiked up a nearby mountain to photograph and film the beautiful sunset. Athens really inspired us and stimulated our creativity. Hope to go back someday to see those sunsets again.
YOUR LIFE IS YOUR LIFE
It’s always a great feeling to be able to share a message like this. A long time ago I came across this poem and I fell in love with it right away. During our time in Athens I had no intentions in using this poem. Everyday we walked up the Filapopou Hill nearby our Airbnb and everyday we were amazed by the beautiful view when we reached the top. We had a lot of fun capturing the sunset before it sunk behind the mountains and it became pitch black.
Only when I looked back on the footage we made, I realised that it would fit perfectly with the poem. I hope that the combination of images and poem will inspire not only filmmakers, but also people who need to hear the message in it.
Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece. Athens dominates the Attica region and is one of the world’s oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years and its earliest human presence started somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennium BC.
Classical Athens was a powerful city-state that emerged in conjunction with the seagoing development of the port of Piraeus. A center for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato’s Academy and Aristotle’s Lyceum, it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, largely because of its cultural and political impact on the European continent, and in particular the Romans. In modern times, Athens is a large cosmopolitan metropolis and central to economic, financial, industrial, maritime, political and cultural life in Greece.
