Austria native Wolf Suschitzky was one of the world’s most famous photographers and cinematographers during the 20th century.
After emigrating to London, England in 1935, Suschitzky traveled the world and captivated thousands of subjects with his affectionate eye and kind soul for more than seven decades.
In the 1960s he visited Greece and captured scenes from social events, everyday life, rural habits and Greek traditions. The photographs below were mostly taken on the island of Skiathos with a few from his subsequent visits to Hydra and Athens.

Is it possible to purchase copies of any of these photos? I lived on Crete for two years and spent lots of time in Athens in the late 60s and would truly appreciate having a copy of 2 or 3 of these wonderful photos. They would be for my personal use to hang in my bedroom.
The photos are Great and you did well to publish an article. As a point of information there is another Greek Photographer that you might be interested Dimitri Papadimos…. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimitri_Papadimos and his personal site https://www.dimitripapadimos.gr/
