Description


A glorious, intimate homage to the magical country of Greece, from bestselling photographer and writer Miguel Flores-Vianna.

A land immortalized by poets for its otherworldly beauty, Greece is the birthplace of iconic monuments that are known the world over. Yet, at the same time, it is also home to an organic architectural language, the product of centuries of rural and island lifestyles—the heir both to the timelessness of classical architecture and the simplicity of rustic living.

This stunning volume chronicles Miguel Flores-Vianna’s photographic odyssey through the beautiful Greek landscape, showcasing historical houses alongside contemporary homes, united by the colorful characters who either live or have lived in these places—the “haute bohemians.”

From the sophisticated residences of collectors and painters to island hideaways, centuries-old tavernas, royal follies, breathtaking gardens, and even a restored sailboat, Haute Bohemians: Greece transports Flores-Vianna’s armchair travel companions to a wondrous world, bathed in the glow of an ethereal light.

The homes of an extraordinary range of individuals are featured, from artists and interior designers to royalty and philanthropists. Among them:
  • Jasper Conran and Oisin Byrne
  • Helen and Brice Marden
  • Eleni Martinou
  • Jacob Rothschild
  • Christina Seilern and Dimitri Goulandris
  • John Stefanidis
  • Katerina Tsigarida

A self-confessed “Hellenophile” who has visited Greece countless times since his childhood, Flores-Vianna invites us to join him in paying tribute to his beloved adopted nation, capturing the character and patina of this enchanting country through his trademark intimate, atmospheric photography and engaging texts.
