Item description for Athens Scenes From Capital Cit by John Cleave, Nikos Vatopoulos & Vivienne Nilan...
Vibrant and rapidly evolving Athens, confluence of the ancient and modern worlds, is the subject of this colourful pictorial essay. Historic monuments crown this mythology-laden city from the bare marble grandeur of the Parthenon and the Theatre of Dionysus to the stately ruins of the temple of Olympian Zeus. Athens conjunction of the very old and the relatively new results in many quaint neighbourhoods. Tour Plaka, the oldest quarter of modern Athens; the market district of Monastiraki; the cafs and bars of Psirri; or the excellent museums and trendy boutiques of Kolonaki. In addition, explore the wider Athens, set against the sun-drenched hill of Lycabettus and the glistening waters of the Saronic Gulf. Architectural photographer John Cleave has taken his original photographs of post-Olympic Athens and modified them with the use of Adobe Photoshop, creating an individual and artistic rendering of the enchanting city.

Outstanding Work of Art Mar 13, 2006
John Cleave understands Athens, and he knows how to present his enhanced photographs in a clear and artistic fashion. The work of Mr Cleave and Didier Millet Publishers in Singapore helps to produce a truly quality book which one will not only want to have on the coffee table, but to read, as well. Worth every penny, and especially when his royalties go to The American Farm School in Greece, an extremely worthy hundred year old institution.
