Early 20th Century Photograph Album Athens Greece

Early 20th Century Photograph Album Athens Greece Rhomaides Brothers  Album Photos %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
Greek photographers Konstantinos (d. 1900) and Aristotelis Rhomaides (d. 1916) were known variously as Rhomaides frères, the Rhomaides Brothers, and the Rhomaidae, although they sometimes signed their work as individuals. They are known for their photographs of classical sites in Greece. Source: From the finding aid for C0986, Princeton University.In the John Hannavy edited Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, Aliki Tsirgialou, of the Benaki Museum, writes the following:The Rhomaides Brothers (Konstantinos and Aristotelis) originally from Bucharest, opened a studio in Ioannina and subsequently settled in Patras. In 1875 they undertook the photographing of the excavations at Olympia carried out by the German Archaeological Institute. This collaboration led to their specialising in archaeological photography, which is why they were employed almost exclusively by most of the archaeological schools operating in Greece at that time. They established themselves in Athens in 1876 while retaining, at the same time, their studio in Patras. The Rhomaides Brothers also won fame as portrait photographers, recording for posterity many of the prominent people of their time. Well-known photographers, such as Ioannis Xanthakis and Antonis Milionis, received their training in their studio. [pg 619]
