Statement from Constantine Manos on the back of print "Shepherds with a goat. Crete, Greece. 1964."
"This picture of shepherds was made in the mountains of Crete. I travelled throughout Greece from 1962 through to 1965, making pictures on rural life in isolated villages which would become my second book, A Greek Portfolio. The images I made in Greece all had a real emphasis on the people. A rule of thumb of mine during that time was to work only in villages which had no electricity. My parents were Greek immigrants to the United States, and being fluent in the language was a great help. I found these villages and their inhabitants to be warm and welcoming."
So, Constantine "Costa" Manos is a Greek-American photographer. Above all, he is best known for his images of Boston and Greece. His work has been published in Esquire, Life, and Look. Also, he is a member of Magnum Photos. Manos was born in Columbia, South Carolina, U.S.A., of Greek immigrant parents. His photographic career began in the school camera club at the age of thirteen. And within several years, he was a working professional. At the age of nineteen, he was the official photographer of the Boston Symphony Orchestra at its summer festival at Tanglewood.
