Aegean Ex Altis: Aerial Photos by Yannis Yannelos
 Photographer: Yiannis Yannelos
Ioli Vingopoulou

340pp.
Militos, 2008
ISBN13: 978-90-464-049-2

Yiannis Yannelos took his camera into the air to show the much-photographed Aegean from a novel angle, then he let the images converse with each other, playing with chance similarities. He matches a church dome on Ios to a mosque dome on Rhodes, and the shapes in a tilled field on Tilos to those in an abandoned village on Folegandros. A windsurfer cutting a curve in a wave at Maleme, Crete, is the reverse image of a sandy promontory on Patmos. Ex Altis celebrates the Aegean: the sheer beauty and variety of the sea itself and the creatures that live in and off it: dolphins leaping, gulls whirling; and the craft that ply its waters: fishing dinghies and trawlers, pleasure boats and massive ferries. Richard Witt has done an excellent job of translating Ioli Vingopoulou’s fanciful captions as well as excerpts from poems by writers including Seferis and Elytis, and traditional and contemporary songs.
