Greek Light: Queen Calliope's World

Last summer I visited for the first time the shop of Calliope. 
The world famous Greek photographer has been a favorite of mine, a bohemian style icon, an accomplished professional.





Α kaftan came home from her collection


 I loved her work in her first book, a few years ago.
Now she is publishing her second book, 
Children of the Light, Journey in Greece, 
benefiting children charities.






You can see more on Calliope Karvunis, here and here.
Her Instagram is right here.
