Photographer's Note

Mátala is a small village on the southern coast of Crete. During the Young Stone Age, lots of dwelling caves were dug into the very soft rocks. They were later used as funeral places during the Roman period.
In the sixties, this was a refuge for hippies from all over the world, especially male US citizens who refused mandatory army service in Vietnam.
This was taken on slide film 20 years later and professionally digitalized.
