Description

Born to Greek immigrant parents in the American South, Constantine Manos first started photographing in his native South Carolina, documenting the segregated state as the nascent civil rights movement gathered steam. He went on to shoot his career-making project on the remote villages of Greece’s myriad islands – all of this early work made in black and white. This image, from the photographers ‘American Color’ project, captures the photographer’s love of color that developed later in his career.
