Ger Dommerholt, who visited Athos with his friend Jan in 1963 and attended the 1000th anniversary festivities is an enthusiastic photographer. We have already shown a number of photos of him in previous posts.
We have saved most of the monk portraits for this post. Ger explicitly asked all the subjects if it was okay for him to take a photo of them. These are the surprising images from 60 years ago.
