19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
The grandmother of Meteora

A typical imagery of a Greek yiayia. The grandmothers of Greece are those who hold the wisdom in our country. They show us who we are; they let us sit with them in all of our honesty, gifting new insightσ in exchange for the stories we carefully craft. Holding ancient myths in their compacted layers of hardened and wrinkled faces. They protect, give, endure. They are our culture keepers.
