Chios: 100 Years of Photography

50,64 €

The photographic history of Chios was virtually unknown until the recent publication of The Photographic Album of 'Chios: One Hundred Years of Photography 1850-1950'.
Systematic research, as well as a comprehensive study of local newspaper archives, uncovered the work of many unknown photographers, whilst gathering fresh information about others who had worked from time to time in Chios. At the same time, several well-known photographers were found to have worked at different periods on the island.
This hitherto unknown data goes beyond local boundaries to appeal to a national level of interest.
The album's 264 photographs, most of which are published for the first time, are equally interesting. The one hundred years of photography analysed in the introductory text, reflects the modern history of island as portrayed through the medium of photography.
This rare photographic archive dating from before the great earthquake of 1881 until the Liberation of Chios in 1912, the inter- war years of 1922-1936 and after the second world war up until 1950, documents the social and political events of the day as well as recording views of the countryside and folkloric traditions of more general interest. At the same time, the photographs continue a highly artistic creative tradition inspired by one of our most beautiful islands.
