Haute Bohemians: Greece: Interiors, Architecture, and Landscapes
'The poetry of the images – whether a tangerine sunrise over a spectacular swimming pool, or rush-seated stools on a flower-fringed terrace – is well served by the large format and seeps into the concise and informative text. Heavy and sumptuous, this offers much more than coffee-table appeal.' - House & Garden
A land immortalized by poets for its otherworldly beauty, Greece is the birthplace of iconic monuments that are known the world over. Yet, at the same time, it is also home to an organic architectural language, the product of centuries of rural and island lifestyles, an heir both to the timelessness of classical architecture and the simplicity of rustic living. This stunning volume chronicles Flores-Vianna‘s photographic odyssey through the beautiful Greek landscape, showcasing the homes of those who liver there today, from the sophisticated residences of fashion designers and the simple yet elegant homes of olive growers, to boutique hotels, futuristic public architecture, museum treasures, and breathtaking scenery, bathed in the glow of ethereal light. A self-confessed ‘Hellenophile‘ who has visited Greece countless times since his childhood, Flores-Vianna invites us to join him in paying tribute to his beloved adopted nation, capturing the character and patina of this enchanting country through his trademark intimate, atmospheric photography, and allowing his armchair-travel companions to be transported there through his lens.
