Here some pictures from my visit to Sografou in 1980 and 1997. At that time I still used my old Olympus reflex camera and I took only 36 pictures (one film!). What a difference it is 27/10 years later, when I shot nearly 400 pictures with my digital camera.
Sografou katholicon – 1980
The kitchen of Sografou – 1980
Lunch with monk Ioachim – 1980
Sografou – monk with semantron – 1980
Sografou – 1997
The kitchen in Sografou was still traditional:
I remember there where only a couple of monks left in 1997 and a lot of the cells of the monks were deserted, like the one above.
