Austria native Wolf Suschitzky was one of the world’s most famous photographers and cinematographers during the 20th century.
After emigrating to London, England in 1935, Suschitzky traveled the world and captivated thousands of subjects with his affectionate eye and kind soul for more than seven decades.
In the 1960s he visited Greece and captured scenes from social events, everyday life, rural habits and Greek traditions. The photographs below were mostly taken on the island of Skiathos with a few from his subsequent visits to Hydra and Athens.
