Constantine Manos A Greek portfolio 50 years later)

Rendering homage to Constantine Manos, prominent artist of the Greek Diaspora, the Benaki Museum presents an exhibition / tribute to his renowned photographic series A Greek Portfolio.
With his exquisite images Manos invites us to travel with him to remote villages and islands of Greece in the nineteen sixties, where, in a landscape of simple farm life and tranquillity, poor yet proud people struggle to survive with dignity, dedicated to a way of life that hadn’t changed for centuries.
His photographs crystallise fleeting everyday moments, in a spare and austere style, which is nevertheless tender, without any pompous rhetoric.
