American photographer Robert McCabe fell in love with Greece since the first time he visited her back on the ’60s. The young student of Princeton University used every possible way to admire the beauty of the country, mostly by traveling multiple times through the years to many of its areas.
As he told to many reporters during a press tour of the Archaeological Society of Athens, where his photos are on display, he “remains so spellbound by the people, the monuments and the general landscape, that he considers himself half American and half Greek.”
His exhibition “Chronographia – Exhibition for the 180 years (1837-2017) of the Archaeological Society” was inaugurated in December and will end on March 29. It is free of charge and open daily, except Saturdays and Sundays, from 10:00 to 18:00.
Two Saturdays, on February 16, 2019 and on March 9, 2019 (11.30 am), the Archaeological Society of Athens welcomes the audience wishing to tour the world of Robert McCabe through 53 black and white photographs, mainly from 1954 to 55 in regions of intense archaeological interest at that time, such as the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, Sounio, Knossos, Santorini, Mycenae, Epidaurus, Delos and others.
