Artemision Jockey (detail)

_801202 [Artemision Jockey (detail)

In December 2014 I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend a guided tour to a photographic exhibition held within the National Archaeological Museum of Greece in Athens. The tour was conducted by the well-known American photographer and ardent philhellene J. Joshua Garrick who guided visitors to his photographic work of selected museum exhibits. The photographer not only provided a wealth of information on ancient Greek art but also led a tour that proved to be a crash course in innovative photography! Thank you Joshua. Days after the tour I couldn’t stop thinking of what the artist had shared with us and was tempted to replicate one or two of his admirable works. Eventually, I succumbed to temptation. The picture above is the outcome of my attempt to photographically approach this exhibit [Artemision Jockey, here] through Joshua’s eyes.
