Nelly's - Acropolis

Tonight I wanted to show solidarity with Greek people (I mean people, not the small greedy and dishonest part of the population) so I decided to post some pictures of a debatable photographer called Elli Sougioultzoglou-Seraidari or more simply Nelly's. Debatable since she was considered by some as a sort of Greek Leni Riefenstahl, and actually knew her and was with her for the filming of the famous (and rather disgusting) Triumph of the Will. But here we are in 1929, and the sort of Ancient Greece imagery she created established a worldwide and national visual paradigm of the Acropolis. What is interesting for this blog, is the way she saw female (and male but the latter is a little bit too previsible) half nudity and gesture. Finally more modern now than it was some years ago. A little virtual booklet here
