This is a very nostalgic video showing the aristocratic side of Athens streets back in 1924
Let’s warm ourselves a little bit with this Greek drink with origins from Turkey, named salepi.
If you stroll in the Greek city centres during winter time, look for the chestnut man, roasting chestnuts on the charcoal. It is a beautiful and nostalgic image, very familiar to Greeks that will definitely bring inspiration for some great photographic captures.
The chestnut seller has a portable brazier with a heap of roasted chestnuts ready to sell in paper cornets.
Some of these photos are from the the Photographic Archive of the Benaki Museum:The Photographic Archive of Benaki Museum was founded in 1973. The collection of the Photographic Archive constitutes of negatives and photographs of the 19th and 20th century. To find out more you can visit the website of Benaki Museum. I could not find any information of the rest as I got them through an image search on Google .
Zakynthos or Zante is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea and a popular summer resort. In this beautiful island lives one of my favourite artists Natassa Klavdianou. Natassa is a local with a true head for art complete with pebbles, wood and other materials nature offers to her inspiration. All beauties she makes with her hands are presented in her gallery in Zakynthos named Sea and Fantasy. She is also a photographer of really aesthetic quality pictures. In this post I am delighted to present some of her astonishing photos.
