On the Acropolis • Tod Papageorge
Hardbound, 120 pages, 2019, Stanley Barker
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, ve 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
