Meeting the world's oldest monastic community: A photojournalist's experience visiting Mount Athos

Telegraph, 29 Mar 2021
In this series 'The full picture', award-winning photojournalist Rick Findler shares the stories behind the photographs.

Rick speaks about his time spent on a very small, very private peninsula off of the Greek coast called Mount Athos - a magical land home to the oldest monastic community on Earth. As monks live a life of prayer in their monasteries, some decide to live a life of complete solitude.

This is the fifth in an eight part series, to watch the other videos visit the playlist 'The Full Picture' or set up your notifications so you never miss an episode.
