In the 1920s and 1930s Paniotis Fatseas took hundreds of photographs - mostly portraits - on Kythera. John Stathatos of the Kytherian Cultural Association "re-discovered" the Fatseas Collection of several thousand photographic glass slides and supported by Angelo and John Notaras of Sydney saved the collection from further deterioration. They have been cleaned, scanned and the best of them are being prepared for an Exhibition at the internationally renowned Benaki Museum in 2008.
A monograph is to be published to accompany the Benaki exhibition, which will include full-page, high-definition duotone illustrations of the 120 finest images. We will also be publishing a catalogue which includes all recovered pictures within the archive. We need your help to identify the subjects of the pictures - that is the purpose of this website. All the pictures can be viewed here and you can add any information you might have about the subjects. Directly and easily. Clicking on any one of the images enlarges it to make the identification easier. Beneath the picture is the comment box in which you can write, and then click on "add" to submit it. Your comment will be published on the site immediately - you of course can also read the comments of others. Click on the orange arrows at the top right to progress through the pictures.
Thanks for your help and interest.
