Athens Chronicles | Vintage Photos

The Swiss photographer Fred Boissonnas (1858 -1946) traveled all across Greece for about thirty years, extensively photographing the country and its people.

The vast collection left by the artist portrays a reality that is partially missing and constitutes an interesting document at various levels.

The admiration and affection he felt for this country are apparent on his compositions, especially those in which the human element is central.

All images in this post were found in this site where you can still find pictures of several other locations in Greece captured by Boissonnas lenses.
