1430 – book: Athos by Kość and Zinneker 1988

Zbigniew Kość, born 1951 in Gdansk (Poland), graduated in social psychology. Zbigniew Kość absolved secondary studies in photography and graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam. Jannis Zinneker, born in 1943, is from Switserland and he has been visiting Mount Athos from 1970 . I bought this book for € 10 in a antique bookstore (ISBN 3905137 16X). For more photos of Kość, now living in Holland, look here.


His Athos pictures are in black and white. Here are a few panoramic pictures:
