Embracing the beauty of fleeting moments and nostalgic reminiscence, this photoseries is a visual diary, an ode to the forgotten simplicities of life. Each image, whether of a man indulging in the serenity of fishing or of a couple sauntering along the beach, serves as a snapshot of life’s undiluted authenticity.
The photographer, Hila Kadi, regards the island as her muse. She confesses, “To me, this island is a she. She is a guide to freedom and simplicity, to generosity, joy, and abundance. A beckoning to be a better human to myself and, therefore, to the world. She is a roaring sea that commands attention, yet is often overlooked by tourists, dismissed as mere decoration.
She is a potent force, one that when aligned with, bestows unbelievable gifts. Dedicate yourself to her, and be rewarded. She embodies the power, the divinity, the life as it should be, untouched by unnecessary human interventions that are often self-harming. I love her.”
