"Doros Partasides was born in Cyprus in 1944 and joined the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation's film unit as a cameraman in 1966. His work was soon acknowledged to be outstanding and imaginative... He went on to produce some of Cyprus's most memorable documentaries. During the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus Doros was on the front lines filming and photographing the trauma of his country. Soon after this Doros produced his first photographic book - 'Cyprus 1974: Days of Disaster', which also exhibited at The Photographer's Gallery, in London. The outstanding body of work has become one of the most important documents on the tragedy of the island. In the months after the invasion Doros moved with his family to Britain and settled in London where he continued to work as a London correspondent and cameraman for CyBC. Both Doros's film work and photography has continued to attract acclaim in Britain and Cyprus and he worked on several critical documentaries for Channel 4. Doros has also produced several photographic books. Portrait photography soon became his specialism as he enjoyed the candid emotions he could draw from his subjects. The pictures in 'Faces of Cyprus' are the results of a lifetime's work." . A Wonderful Document of his love of Cyprus and all things Cypriot.
