His work “Abstract Greece” displays the beauty of the spectacular Greek island of Santorini, one of the world’s most sought-after tourist destinations. Its iconic white-washed architecture, built along the steep slopes of the mountainous island, form an abstract pattern from above, dotted with sunbathing tourists.
Although it came as a surprise, Nagy said that he felt “a real joy and pride” when he was announced as the Aerial Photographer of the Year.
