About Stelios Kleanthous
My name is Stelios Kleanthous and i was born in Nicosia.
I always liked to live by the sea and nature, so at one point of my life, in mid 80’s, I moved here in Famagusta area.
I am a self-taught photographer and artist, and the sea is the one I explore the most.
There are endless possibilities, but also it is also difficult to shoot the surface or under this beast in stormy situations…
Most of the time you will find me by the sea when it is a storm and when everyone else is at home in their comfort zone.
When I am in the water, my heart beats loudly, and my senses are awake…every drop of water is an alarm…
These moments are unique, and they will never happen again in the same way…
My purpose is to make you feel the other side of this amazing place that I call home,
and to show you that in a blink of an eye, you will lose that specific drop of water, wave, or colours that it will be created.
Some of the photos were shot in milliseconds…
Hopefully these photos will make you feel more than my words to you…
