CHARLES WEBER PHOTOGRAPHY

 

The Swiss photographer has lived and worked in Crete for the past three decades. The Benaki Museum organizes a big exhibition called “The Greek Series”, where the celebrated artist will show his photographic progress in his second homeland, Greece. More than 150 pictures, divided into seven chapters filled with tenderness and spontaneity, are the living proof of  the expression: “Home is where your heart is.”

 

The exhibition will last until March 17th.

 

LISTEN TO “MY BLOODY VALENTINE”

 

The recent release of “My Bloody Valentine” has caused much excitement to the music world, as the band has just been reunited after 22 years. They uploaded their whole album, called “mbv” to their website, which promptly crashed as the bands faithful followers, along with some newcomers, wanted to listen to the new songs. We chose “She Found Now”, for its noisy guitars and the soft vocals.
