The Photographer Voula Papaioannou: From the Archive of the Benaki Museum
 Voula Papaioannou

646pp.
Agra & Benaki Museum, 2006
ISBN: 960-325-649-8 (Agra)960-8347-43-2 (Benaki Museum)

Voula Papaioannou, along with Balafas, Meletzis and Tloupas, is one of several prominent Greek photographers who came to maturity during the Occupation and Greek Civil War. Her images from the Occupation are unique documents of the period that skillfully transcend the demand for realistic information. Her photographs present the misery and pain of the occupation as part of life, and her subjects are infused with the breath of spontaneity.
There is no easy melodrama in her method. On the contrary, the photographer distances herself from the subject with the detachment of a historian. She never gets too close, nor does she employ facile effects like overly dramatic light and shade. Her view of the subject is so clear and discreet, almost innocent, that the final image has all the persuasiveness of authenticity (even in posed shots).
This is an exceptional publication, both as photographic art and a rare historical
