Stanley/Barker, 2019 First edition Softcover, 128 pages, 300 x 240 mm Condition: New
In the summers of 1983 and 1984, American photographer Tod Papageorge adopted a daily ritual in Athens. He would wake up each morning at the Zafolia Hotel and walk up the hill to the Acropolis to spend the day photographing the scene around the ancient citadel.
The resulting images seem lost in time, fusing the ancient with the modern. The pilgrimage of tourists to the Acropolis were photographed as a kind of resonance of the original Athenian processions; many of my pictures echo the dramas of Greek myths –always physical and often verging on violence – even as they capture the routines and rhythms of visitors.
