Between 1983 and 84 Tod Papageorge spent two summers at the Acropolis in Greece, producing a body of work that seems lost in time, fusing the ancient with the modern.
“I stayed at a nice hotel, the Zafolia, five minutes from the Acropolis, where every surface in my room was marble, and where I did laps I the pool every evening, driving the hotel staff crazy. I usually ate lunch at the vegetarian restaraunte in the Plaka, right under the Pathenon. I just liked the food. Have no memory at all od where I’d go for Dinner. Very Solitary the whole time. That was it: up The Hill in the Morning, down for lunch, usually back up for more, then a swim then dinner somewhere nearby.” - Tod Papageorge
