The song "Life is" was the theme song for the musical "Zorba the Greek". The lyrics were written by Fred Ebb and John Kande, and the acclaimed composer Mikis Theodorakis wrote the music. Zorba the Greek is a dark, love story, and tells the tale of an English writer and intellectual who tries to escape his conventional life with the help of a mysterious, bustling and boisterous man, called Alexis Zorbas. The film adaptation was shot on Crete, where Antony Quinn dances his famous Sirtaki dance at the beach of Stavros in the Akrotiri peninsula of Crete.
For this series, I've selected a set of images of a half-Greek model Zoi, who herself has a house not far from the beach in Crete where the Zorba the Greek film was shot. In this series, Zoi sways in the wind, much like Zorba did as he was swept madly from one great love to the next, while fiercely defending his freedom.
