The Project

Each photograph is meticulously staged, highlighting the unique details and characteristics of each costume, with great attention given to postures, attitudes, and hand placements that are typical of the area from which the costume originates.

Background

From the rugged mountains of Thrace to the sun-drenched islands of the Ionian, the costumes of Greece tell a story of resilience, endurance, and survival. Through the lens of photographer George Tatakis, these costumes come to life with intricate textures and details highlighted through masterful use of contrast. Caryatis is not only visually stunning, but also rooted in extensive research and documentation of the history and context of each costume. Join us on a journey through Greece's rich cultural heritage and the people who wore these costumes with pride and determination.
