In the first World War Athos was occupied by the French for a short while. During this period a photographer “Le Baron”, who accompanied G. Milet, an Athos-“connaisseur”, took his change (just like Napeoleon did in Egypt more then 100 years earlier) to do some scientific work and shoot hundreds of pictures. Amoung them were some “autochromes”, one of the first color pictures.
Today I’ll show you a few pictures of monks.
