By Richard Chamberlain……

I first came to Cyprus as a National Serviceman in 1954 and continued serving as a British Soldier until 1955 when I returned to the UK and during my leisure time in Cyprus I spent a lot of time taking photographs of many people and places and as they say, the rest is history.

Since those far off days, I have returned to Northern Cyprus many times before moving here 2 years ago to make the TRNC my home and I have published two books featuring some of the many photographs that I have taken and this in turn resulted in me meeting many fascinating and interesting people who I was able to talk to about the visions of Cyprus then and now.

Among the many people I have met, I was honoured to meet 4 Presidents of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and I hope the books I presented to them will have been shown to their friends and visitors.

I have also had a 2018 calendar published and the price is 30TL and it will be available from Bestseller Bookshop, The Round Tower, the Money Exchange office opposite Cratos Hotel, Presscopy, near GAU, Wild Duck, Buyuk Han, Lefkosa or by contacting me Richard Chamberlain on 0533 859 7663.
