Athens Twice Seen, ppb

Price: $28.00


Early in the 2000s, photographer Richard Moore began making “twice-seen” images, with vintage and contemporary photographs, merging surrealism and history. This title features combined photographs of historic monuments and areas of Athens, and was sponsored by The Hellenic American College and the NH Institute of Art. “Moore’s dual photographs—images of Athens from the previous century paired with corresponding contemporary photos shot from the same spot—open up before our eyes a fascinating window to memory, stirring a moving sense of intimacy at the sight of well-known and beloved sites across the city. It is the spirit of Athens itself that is represented in Moore’s photographs, which prompt us to take another look at the city, or “see it twice.’” —Leonidas Phoebus Koskos, President, Hellenic American University.
