Attributed to Dimitrios Constantin or Constantine (active 1858-1860s), two (2) early albumen photograph prints of Greece, c.1860-65, depicting the Parthenon and Propylon Acropolis, each mounted to cardstock with hand written ink script titles. Photographs: 8" H x 10" W. Cardstock mat: 12" H x 15" W. Provenance: Private Holly Springs, Mississippi collection. Note: "Upon opening his first studio in 1858, Dimitrios Constantin probably became the second professional photographer in Greece, after Philippos Margaritis. He exhibited his work internationally, winning a Bronze Medal in Paris at the 1867 International Exhibition. Constantin was the first photographer to work for the Greek Archaeological Society, documenting archaeological sites." Source: the J. Paul Getty Museum. Condition: Toning, overall very good condition.
