Tales of Albania By Seigar
Last summer, I visited Albania with my sister, and I instantly fell in love with its immensity and rawness. There is an instinctive sense of living that is reflected in the beauty of its urban and natural landscapes. In this photo-narrative, I will show some impressions from Tirana, Berat, Cape of Rodon, Shkoder, Theth – Valbona, Grunasi Waterfall, Blue Eye, Komani Lake, Ksamil, Gjirokastra, and Blue Eye (Sarandë). The images work as a testimony and also as a personal diary of this trip. Traveling is still my main inspiration to create, and I like to think that by sharing these tales with the world, I’m spreading the message of the Latin Phrase: Carpe Diem.
