An exhibition of photographs by Stella Johnson from her latest project, ZOI.
Photography is about seeking out and being with people. These images reflect my experience of daily life in Greece and the religious and cultural rituals on the islands of Lesvos, birthplace of my maternal grandmother, and Crete where I am teaching photography.
