Photographer's Note

After Candlelight and A chapel in Delos this is the third photo from the secret and sacred feast, that takes place once a year in the sacred island of Delos, "undercover". This is the moment when the ceremony in the small church has ended and it's time for "artoklasia" (the offering of "holy" bread).

The man that cuts the bread belongs to the Vlassopoulos family. The older member, an old guard of the archaeological site, was the man that built this chapel and the one that started the feast many decades ago. Nowadays his sons and grandsons are keeping the tradition.

This was the last "stage" of the ceremony, before we moved where the "party" took place, inside the ancient Gymnasium.
