Although I grew up in Australia, I feel myself fortunate to have been born in Guardavalle_Calabria_Italy. Over the years I have kept a close bond with Guardavalle and it's people, experiencing at first hand it's hospitality and all that Guardavalle has to offer. Therefore it is a "real privilege and an absolute pleasure", for me to showcase these "archival" photographs for the first time. The photographs have been many years in the making. ........ They total in all 4227 photographs (and growing), of which, 2150 are "archival" photographs, spread over 107 galleries.
