©Frederik Buyckx – Kalaja e Dodes (Doda’s Castle) is a region in Albania including Albania’s highest mountain Mount Korabi and it’s surrounding 7 villages. This region still remains one of the most authentic regions in Albania and much of it’s lifestyle has remained unchanged during the last decades. Traditions are kept alive in this region, although it’s hard with modernization creeping in and a flux of people trading the mountain villages for a life in the capital or abroad.
But also in the past under the leadership of Doda they didn’t surrender easily to invaders. Doda came up with a ruse by offering 300 veiled woman to the army of the Ottomans as a gift to keep the enemy away. The women were actually 300 veiled warriors that slaughtered the ottoman army.

This image was taken in Sicily. I am working on a project called ‘A day on the beach’, a documentary project focused on the life on the sicilian beaches during the crowded months of summer. The project began on 2013 and in 2014(after I bought a new mobile phone) I took some photos for this project even with my mobile phone(these can be seen on my Instagram profile: https://instagram.com/turicalafato/ ). The shot was taken at the end of July 2014. It is usual to see scenes like this because people spend all day along at the beach and all the usual activities, like playing, eating, sllepping, etc., are done outdoors. All kind of people are seen, and it is a pleasure to contemplate at the same time so much of humanity enjoying and relaxing under the sun.
