Born in 1934 in Chicago IL, Robert McCabe has been fascinated by Greece since his very first visit here in 1950. Through his extensive explorations on both the mainland and the islands, McCabe has documented the beauty of Greek ancient monuments and landscapes, as well as the life and traditions of the people living here.
The director of the Museum of Cycladic Art, Mrs. Sandra Marinopoulou, invited McCabe to present his work at the museum with a focus on the monuments and the landscapes he photographed during his journeys around the Aegean — as a way to complement the museum's other exhibition, Cycladic Society, which commemorates the Museum of Cycladic Art's 30th anniversary. Shot mostly in black and white during the 1950s and 60s, McCabe's photos beautifully document life on the Greek isles as the latest chapter of a fascinating cultural journey that began with the Cycladic figurines around 5000 years ago.
