THE OLIVE FACTORY – ORMOS

One of the most prominent buildings in Ormos on the island of Samos, Greece is the local Olive factory.  It is located on the outskirts of the village, on the edge of the harbour and has quite an imposing presence within the rural setting.  It is not a particularly beautiful building, nor quite as impressive as Mount Kerkis, but I saw this building every day of my 3 months stay in Ormos as an environmental photographer and developed a deep affection for it.

This factory was used for the production of olive oil and soap.   The play of light on the building made for some great images.
