uex - kalami @ crete: where time stopped

At 480 meters altitude, hidden within the peaks and valleys of Crete, Kalami is the place where time stopped. Population was 501 in 1961, 44 in 2001, 8 in 2011 and 2 today. From the mid 70’s to the 80’s people started moving to the seaside in search of a better life. They went back and forth, but eventually the village was left to the almighty power of time. These images constitute a closer view of what remains today. A peek into the lives that once where there.
