    Review quote
    'a fresh, Zeus's-eye perspective on landscapes, and sites, that ring with ancient and mythological significance' Metro 'With tales of strife and discord the daily bread of Greece, it is easy to forget why the country has beguiled everyone from ancient poets to modern holiday-makers,. This book, however, with its 150 bird's-eye photographs, is a salutary reminder.' The Independent 'Aerial views like the 100 images in Georg Gerster's The Sites of Ancient Greece...achieve a perspective even those immortals can envy.' The Wall Street Journal 'Gaze at the bright blues and whites of timeless Greece with aerial photography at its best.' Boston.com 'These photographs are at once striking images unto themselves and documents of a time and place. This time is now but the place is the past - we are at once straddling the space where time simply collapses. And in being in this space, Gerster allows us to consider the photograph itself as a means to telling us a story which has no beginning and no end.' La Lettre de la Photographie
