William Abranowicz has photographed Greece for more than two decades, and his images show all dimensions of Greek life: its stores and cafés, its ancient ruins, its craggy mountains, and its villages rising out of brilliant aquamarine waters. Collectively, these photographs convey what defines present-day Greece.
Abranowicz’s photographs are held in public and private collections, including the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, the Getty Museum, Los Angeles, the National Portrait Gallery, London, the National Collection and the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC, and the International Center for Photography in New York. His work has also been featured in many publications, including The New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Architectural Digest.
Louis de Bernières is a British novelist whose most well-known work is international bestseller Captain Corelli's Mandolin, which has been translated into 11 languages since its publication.
