Paolo Di Paolo, Marcello Mastroianni , n. The strength and enthusiasm that motivated us young people was overwhelming: Our happiness was intoxicating. When I decided to give up photography, a career that had allowed me to express fully the joy of being part of a creative society during that happy time, it felt like waking up from a dream and being anxious.
Curated by Giovanna Calvenzi, Mondo Perduto is organized into five different segments to intersect and establish dialogue with another. All the photographs in the exhibition seem to be cosmically tethered to one another. With each of his portrait subjects, Di Paolo created a relationship based on empathy, trust, and collaboration. Whether it is enigmatic director Pier Paolo Pasolini visiting Monte dei Cocci—where ancient Romans built a hill by methodically piling up broken oil jars—actress Kim Novak ironing in her room at the Grand Hotel, or director Michelangelo Antonioni walking while reading a newspaper, each Di Paolo image embodies an acute sense of Zen, signaling an almost mystic bond between the photographer and the subject.
Location is also excellent with first class views of the caldera and easy walking distance to any place in Oia. Would recommend this hotel to anyone in a heartbeat! When you are at Canaves Oia Hotel what you see looking west from the island's rim, down and over the sea which flooded the crater of Santorini, is so grand generating an emotion comparable to what you get when looking at the Grand Canyon in Arizona that it conditions your mood and elevates your spirit.
The hotel provides the flawless setting for the powerful emotional experience. Each room an apartment, really is different, with its own character; clearly the hotel was built in a portion of the preexisting village, which provides a charming sense of ancient, although the architecture is obviously recent, excellent and pleasantly functional. Service is impeccable, and the food good.
Whether you go there to be in company or in search of quietness to do some thinking or writing, that is the place for you. The price is substantial, but what you get is worth getting if you can afford it. And, dulcis in fundo: internet connection is free, unlimited meaning that you can synchronize as many devices as you please, without having to go through the hassle of idiotic logins and password insertions , and it even works something that cannot always be taken for granted. The hotel has a breath taking view and the most beautiful sunset view.
We stayed in the honeymoon suite and the breakfast at the balcony was the most romantic view ever within the beautiful island of Santorini.

Also, it is great to walk around and access other hotels in the Oia area, but we conluded that Canaves Oia Suites has the best view. It is located in a perfect place in Oia with a traditional picturesque view of blue roofs churches within all the wihite buildings. It is hard to expect to have a modern and 5 star room like in metropolitan cities since all of their rooms are located in the middle of the rock, but it was nice and clean and really like a cave. However, balcony is best.
Staff are really friendly, breakfast is so delicious with freshly squeezed orange juice. Great location views were beatuiful, hotel is a 5star all the way, Great service!!
Food was excellent. I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and loved it -- the views are incredible. I recommend you sign up for the hotel program with their hotel group Small Luxury Hotels Of the World even if you never think you'll stay there again. We did and we were pleasantly surprised to find that they had upgraded us to a suite. The suite had two floors top floor was where the bed was and it was a loft , the living room wasn't huge but it was perfect for us.
I loved the white marble in the bathroom. The food at this place for breakfast and dinner were also decent.

More Show less. Date of stay: May And although I prefer it, many of my photos only work best in color. One thing that binds the styles of photography giants, like Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Gary Winogrand and Henri Cartier-Bresson, is their willingness to embrace new technologies.
Look at the later photographs of Winogrand and Robert Frank and you'll see what I mean. The smaller the camera, the closer I can get. For this reason I favor the Ricoh GR. I also shoot film with Pentax cameras and lenses as detailed below. I always try to see the shot with my intuition and compose to the eye. I consider the importance of the camera to be far secondary to seeing with my heart.
I always want to look through the view finder; Practical considerations make it difficult to do so every time. Occasionally, I shoot from the hip. I carry the camera with the strap over my shoulder and a shirt, hoody or parka on top. I hides the camera a bit.
But I can also make a tripod by pinning the camera to my brow. I love long walks and street feeds into the drive. Lately I've stood in the same spot rather than walk around. I'm getting older. Yet a more studied approach can yield results. Reflections give us a creative pallet to create the unique image.
