«My whole career I've had a strong desire to visit Crimea. In part from my past work as a war photographer, which helped create this long fascination with historic wars.
The Crimean War has such a strong mystical sound to it. A sound of a place I've aways desired to go.
So I jumped at the opportunity to visit this historic peninsula known as Crimea.
My main focus turned in on Sevastopol, and the coast running up to Yalta.
What I found was a people, be it locals or tourist from Russia, who were in love with their Sevastopol.
Sevastopol with such a alluring presence about it, for everywhere your reminded of the sea & the sun. You walked the streets and everywhere you can feel the historic beauty of this wonderful city and her people.Crimea, a place for sure I want to return».
