Point and counterpoint

The thread connecting these photographs, taken on the Greek island of Paros, is the line that runs between the raw and the worked, which may be heavily drawn or so fine it all but disappears. The delicately framed water of a pool reads against the wider prospect of sea contained by rugged landscape. The sacred geometry of white stone walls, cut and shaped by man, sits in bold counterpoint to the rough faces of coastal bluffs.
