Note: This portfolio of  images represents yet another offering via Weekly Hubris of works by photographer Doris Athanassakis. Here, Doris again turns her lens on elements of her analog and demotic world, focusing on cliff-face views of Santorini’s “caldera,” and the myriad and variegated cats among which she lives. Athanassakis spends her summers in Imerovigli,  a caldera-side village on the volcanic island. Of Greek and Austrian heritage, Athanassakis has been photographing her island home, its architecture, and its human and feline residents, all her life. Her work comprises an ongoing and lifelong meditation upon her stunningly unique surroundings . . . and herself in them. (All Athanassakis’s works are for sale, in limited edition archival prints: please contact her regarding gallery sales through her Weekly Hubris email address:
