Benaki Museum of Greek Culture - Photographs of Joan Leigh Fermor: Artist and Lover

Between the 1940s and 1960s Joan Leigh Fermor took thousands of photographs of people and places as she travelled with Paddy round Greece. A few appeared in his books Mani and Roumeli; most remained unseen on her death in 2003. Her archive is held at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh.
In a new book and exhibition, Ian Collins and Olivia Stewart pay tribute to an elusive figure whose art is a revelation.
