In the winter of 2022, I travelled to six islands in the Dodecanese, in the Aegean Sea of Greece. One of these islands was Rhodes. The largest of the Dodecanese, Rhodes is home to a very well-preserved castle in its capital as well as the medieval town of Lindos, still preserved intact. I have photographed the traditional costumes of five different areas, the most characteristic ones of the island.

Demetrius of Corinth founded the city of Rhodes in 408 BC. It became the seat of a bishop in the late Roman period when it was already a major stopping point for ships travelling between Asia and Europe. Today, the city is renowned as an international tourist destination. Its ancient landmarks such as The Colossus of Rhodes and the Palace of the Grand Master are among its most popular attractions.
