I have visited about 20 European countries since 1985, as you can see on the map.
They all have their own beauty, their own genius. But they also have much in common, despite of and because of their violent history. From the Greeks and the Romans, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the baroque, classic and romantic eras, up to the present time, the European people and artists have offered us many wonders. If these have their own characteristics in each country and often in each region, they all share a same spirit and come from the heart to talk to the heart and to the senses.
They are the reminder that in spite of tyrants, totalitarian régimes, fundamentalism of all kind, inconceivable barbarity, there are men of good will who are searching and serving peace, brotherhood and beauty.
I have selected & scanned about 6,500 photos which I took during these numerous trips.
I have no pretension to special skills as a photographer and get easily bored with photo technique.
