The “Renaissance of Love” Fine Art Editorial Shoot from Corfu
Today we are happy to share with you this lovely organic inspiration from one of the Ionian Islands in Greece!
This Renaissance of Love inspiration, which leads us back to nature and reminds us of our core values of love and family. This organic styled shoot sill show you the island of Corfu in a different way, which you may have never seen before.
Corfu, with its Venetian heritage, has many traditions, but one of the biggest is the celebration of Easter. It is a must see full week of traditions, or The Holy Week as they call it, were every day is dedicated to a special task, from breaking pots to group masses on the main square. Go get your holy fire and don´t miss the final fireworks after the final Easter mass.
This styled shoot was captured by Karina Papadopoulos
From Karina Papadopoulos:
“The “Renaissance of Love” shoot was inspired by the beauty of simple life. While people make everything so complicated, they should put technology away for a while, and live a healthy life with no distractions. I think we all should be thankful for what we have.
The art of having less but enjoying our lives more, involves a few simple changes in perspective. First, we must understand where our true values lie and focus on them. Then, we must take time to enjoy the simple things, and slow down and see what is right in front of us.
This is a story about a couple who would like to celebrate their simple life and get married once again in front of their kids. They are grateful for what they have and that the can enjoy simple pleasures.
The narrative for this editorial shoot was influenced by the beautiful and inspiring landscape of the Corfu island; rich in history and blessed with the most spectacular views. As most of the shoots in Greece are made by the seaside, I was thinking to show a different point of view.
I totally fell in love with Old Perithia, an ancient village which remains something of an enigma. The village was surrounded by vines, oak trees and thousands of sheep that roamed across the mountainside.
I had a pleasure to work in Greece with all these amazing vendors!”
