The inner world of Mastic Villages

“If Christopher Columbus had to say that nowhere else had he found anything like Chios Mastic, Yatzer has to say that nowhere else has it seen a better photographic approach of the Mastic Villages.

Mastihohoria (Mastic Villages) is a series of photographs by Stratis Vogiatzis dedicated to the villages of the Greek island ofChios, which is famous for the production of mastic, a resin obtained from the mastic tree known as the “tears of Chios”. His book “Inner World”, published in 2009, unveiled the amazing world of those traditional villages that once based their whole existence on the valuable crystal “tear”, shed every year by the infamous mastic trees.
