Whenever you come you Thessaloniki / Greece you have to pay a visit to the White Tower.
It´s a monument and museum on the waterfront of the city of Thessaloniki, which is the capital of the region of Macedonia and the second biggest city in Greece. This tower has seen a lot over the years. Build around 1430 by Sultan Murad II and his Ottomans was used as a fort, garrison and a prison. In 1826 there was a big massacre of the prisoners in the tower and his name changed from the White Tower in “The Tower of Blood”.
In 1912, the tower was whitewashed as a symbol of cleansing and acquired his present name again. During the Worldwar 2, the tower was used to store food for the German soldiers. As I said, these walls saw a lot of things in the past but now it becomes one of the most famous sightseeing spots in Thessaloniki. It also houses a Byzantine museum and is one of the Antiquities of the Greek Ministry of Culture.
Around the tower there is a lot of stuff going on. A lot of tourists and teenagers use it as a hangout spot…..you can see skateboarders doing their Kick flips and Heelies under the statue of Alexander the Great and you can start trips into the Aegean Sea from there…. It´s definitely worth to check it, get some ice cream or one of the famous Greek coffee specialties and enjoy the sun…
He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you.

And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library.
