a day at the Benaki museun





I went to this exhibition a few months ago and i have been 
smitten from the power of these photos ever since.

The exhibition's title was:
Constantine Manos
A Greek portfolio 
50 years later

Mr Manos '' invited '' us to travel through his photos 
to remote villages and islands of Greece during the
nineteen sixties.

His photos crystalized every day moments , customs , 
habits , celebrations in a way we could understand what 
has been changed and what it is still the same.

The faces , the symbols , the signs of time are very 
strong everywhere.

These are only three of the hundreds of the photographs 
been exhibited.  

I leave the rest to you

love K.
