The Creative Photograph in Archaeology: From the Traveling Photographers of the 19th Century to the Creative Photography of the 20th Century
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Kouros Gallery  •  Ongoing
 
 

Organized by the Benaki Museum, Athens, in collaboration with Fairfield University Department of Visual and Performing Arts, the exhibition includes 76 dramatic black and white framed prints featuring Greek antiquities that have been produced from high resolution scans of the original negatives. The exhibition is divided into five units that span 150 years and visually portray the story of the delicate balance between documentation and creative vision in photographs with antiquities as the subject -- from the first photographic attempts of the early travelers in the 19th century through the sophisticated work of the late 20th to early 21st century.

Photographers represented: James Robertson, Dimitrios Konstantinou, William Stillman, Petros Moraitis, Konstantinos Athanasiou, Anton Silberhuber, Frederic Boissonnas, Walter Hege, Herbert List, Goesta Hellner and Socratis Mavrommatis.
