In the early 1960s, Constantine Manos spent three years living in Greece and working as a photographer under the auspices of the prestigious agency Magnum Photos. His long out-of-print book A Greek Portfolio represents an impromptu pictorial account of Manos’s travels through rural Greece and the Greek islands.
A Greek Portfolio was first published in 1972; the limited first edition has since become a much sought-after collector’s item. Upon publication, the work received awards at Arles and at the Leipzig Book Fair.
This new edition has been enhanced through the addition of eight previously unpublished images and a new foreword. Today, Manos is one of the most famous photographers alive and his images appear in worldwide collections and top museums including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
The book is available used and in collectors edition. Click here to see options.
