Dem,
Thank you for these photos! I see they are from the Life archives. How many of them and which ones were actually printed in the article? What issue? Forgive my ignorace if this info has already been posted.

Kindest regards,
Mary

DANG! What a fine looking man... he was and ever shall be.

Thanks for these photos, Dem. I've never seen them, either.

MaryB:

Unfortunately I haven't been able yet
to locate the exact article in the LIFE magazine.
It must be in the years 1960-61.
I found these photographs in the LIFE magazine archive
that is now available on the Internet.
There are many more of them, for example there are
about 20 shoots from the donkey ride up to the Hydra monastery
and about another 20 shoots from that night at Dousko's.
Here I posted only a selection.

Sadly the photographer, James Burke, was killed in an
accident on the Hymalayas in 1964:
