Robert A. McCabe
The prolific American photographer, Robert McCabe, who was given honorary Greek citizenship in early 2020, first came to the shores of Greece as a young visitor in 1954. In the ensuing years, McCabe captured the changing world of the Greek islands and other parts of the country with a keen and kind eye, presenting his work in a number of stirringly beautiful photography books. Topics that these volumes have addressed range from ancient archaeological sites to the history of wooden sailing ships in the Aegean, and from the waning of a remote island monastery to commonalities between the nations and peoples of China and Greece. Over the past two decades, McCabe has exhibited his work at a dozen solo shows in Greece, France, Belgium, and the US.
