The magazine of the photo-essay
December 2019 issue
On the Acropolis
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine. Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
During the summers of 1983-84, for a month each year, Tod Papageorge photographed on the Acropolis, producing a body of work that seems lost in time, fusing the ancient with the modern. “I stayed at a nice hotel, the Zafolia, five minutes from the Acropolis, where every surface in my room was marble, and where I did laps in the pool every evening, driving the hotel staff crazy. I usually ate lunch at a vegetarian restaurant in the Plaka, right under the Acropolis, but I have no memory at all of where I’d go for dinner. Very solitary the whole time. That was it: Up The Hill in the morning, down for lunch, then back up again for more, then a swim and dinner somewhere nearby.” – Tod Papageorge
