Takis Tloupas, the artist-photographer best known for his work in Thessaly, visited Mount Athos in 1969. On his journey he captured the everyday life and faces of the monks, as well as the holy buildings. This record of his travels contains 115 photographs which offer historical testimony to the life of Mount Athos in 1969 and are of great value and interest to both the scholar and the general reader.

'...on Mount Athos, Takis Tloupas worked with the zest of the artist and the piety of the pilgrim. He recorded photographically the architecture of the monasteries, this masterpiece of craft and faith. Concurrently, he penetrated kindly into the depths of the monk's soul...'
