Hommage to Constantine Manos

Living in Greece for three years, Constantine Manos - - travelled the countryside in search of images that capture the character and beauty of a way of life that had been virtually unchanged for centuries. The pictures of „A Greek Portfolio“ are the record of random wanderings in places where the only sound might be the distant tinkling of sheep bells, where hospitality for the stranger is a sacred tradition, and where time has stood still against a backdrop of rural simplicity and serenity.


This is my hommage to his faboulus work. Not much has changed in the countryside of "modern" Greece. Most villages have remained untouched over the centuries. The pace of live is the same as it was back in the sixties. The majority of pictures were taken in 2011, 2012 and 2013 travelling in Greece and the Greek islands.


PS: All Pictures taken with the Leica M8 and Leica Summicron 50 mm f2.0 and Leica Apo-Summicron 90 mm f2.0 lenses.
