Mount Athos Project:
Tim Vyner's first visit to Mount Athos as the beneficiary of the Doug Patterson/RCA bursary was in the spring of 2013. By the time the seasons had completed a full cycle he would have visited all 20 Monasteries on in three separate trips.
The bursary offered Tim a unique window into this remarkable place and the fathers who live their lives far from the public gaze. The architecture and landscape is breathtaking. It is a spiritual place. From the moment you step off the boat in Dafni you feel the power of tradition and prayer in this most spiritual of places.
