The close relationship between photography and archaeology is widely acknowledged. Since its invention, photography has been an indispensable documentation tool for archaeology, while the development of digital technology has facilitated the growing needs of an archaeological excavation in recording and archiving.



‘….today some archaeologists have transformed themselves into artists exploiting the visual grammar of the past decades.’ - Dragos Gheorghiu (2014): Antiquity
'Infantidis [presents] a collection of photographs that document the ephemeral, tangential notes from the excavations at Dispilio. In this he repositions the photographer not as a passive observer, but as an active participant in the investigation of the past.' - Michael Willis (2014): Journal of Contemporary Archaeology
