Photographer's Note

Monastiraki is one of my favorite places in Athens.
Under the Acropolis and with a view to Parthenonas
from the small streets and alleys,is a place full
of history.When I was walking in Monastiraki and
Plaka everything gives a sense to me that I was
going back in time.The ancient Greece lives together
with the contemporary and modern Greece.The Flea
Market,named giousouroum from the locals,is another
favorite and most interesting place.You can find
antiques,books,records and furnitures.These items have
their own history.When i saw this old grammophone,
I tried to think the way from it was brand new in
the past,to these days, looking for a new owner and
a new place,to play it's old wonderful music.
I like very much my visits and walks to Monastiraki
on sundays when Market everywhere is closed.Except in
yiousouroum.I buy rare vinyl albums from 60s,then take
my newspaper and drink my coffee with a view of
Parthenonas and Thisio.In the air plays music of
Manos Hadjidakis...
