A survey of Thracian costumes in the 21st century.
This work, which is part of "Caryatis" project, is the evolvement of the photographer's previous work, "ETHOS" and the photographer himself. It focuses on female traditional costumes all over Greece. The images are no longer snapshots of non-posed subjects, but the photographer now takes control of the whole scene and direction.
The entry is focused on the costumes of Thrace, Greece.
George Tatakis is exhibiting and publishing his work internationally in important institutions and media, such as the Benaki and Fragonard Museums, National Geographic and LFI. His body of work and numbered/ signed print owners are archived at the Benaki Museum.
