Constantine Manos (1934-)
"The flow of people in a setting, their changing relationships to each other and their environment, and their constantly changing expressions and movements - all combine to create dynamic situations that provide the photographer with limitless choices of when to push the button. By choosing a precise intersection between subject and time, he may transform the ordinary into the extraordinary and the real into the surreal." -Constantine Manos
Constantine Manos was born in South Carolina to Greek immigrant parents. His photographic career began when he was 13, in the school camera club, and within several years he was a professional photographer. At the age of 19 he was hired as the official photographer of the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood. During this time he attended The University of South Carolina, graduating 1955 with a B.A. in English Literature. After military service, he moved to New York, where he worked for "Esquire", "Life", "Look", as well as shooting many assignments for Time-Life books. One of his books include, A Greek Portfolio, a collection of photographs made in isolated areas of rural Greece in the early 1960's. This book won awards at Arles and at the Leipzig Book Fair. In 1963, Constantine Manos joined Magnum Photos.

Constantine Manos
Constantine Manos is an American photographer known for his images of Boston and Greece. His work has been published in Esquire, Life, and Look and he is a member of Magnum Photos.
Manos first began taking photographs while in high school when he joined his school's camera club. Within a few years he was working professionally as a photographer. At 19, Manos was hired as the official photographer for the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood. His photographs of the orchestra culminated in 1961 with his first published work, Portrait of a Symphony. Manos graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1955, majoring in English Literature. He served in the military and then moved to New York City, working for magazines. From 1961-1964, Manos lived in Greece, photographing the people and landscape. This work resulted in A Greek Portfolio, published in 1972 and which won awards at Arles and the Leipzig book fair. In 1963, Manos joined Magnum Photos and became a full member in 1965.
After his time in Greece, Manos lived in Boston. In 1974, Manos was hired by the city to create the photographs for the Where's Boston? exhibition, a large production in honour of Boston's 200th anniversary. The photos from that exhibit were published in the book Bostonians: Photographs from Where's Boston?
In 1995, American Color was published, containing Manos' recent photographs of American people. A Greek Portfolio was reissued in 1999, followed by a major exhibition of his work at the Benaki Museum of Athens. In 2003, Manos was awarded the Leica Medal of Excellence for his American Color photographs.

In this brilliant new work, Magnum photographer Constantine Manos continues his exploration of the dynamic intersection between subject and time, the real and the surreal in American towns. From Santa Monica and New Orleans to Provincetown and New York City, on streets, beaches, crowded boardwalks, and at small-town carnivals, Manos has captured the varied spectrum of contemporary life in all its offbeat and charming strangeness.
Constantine Manos is author of A Greek Portfolio and American Color. His work is in the permanent collections of Museum of Fine and Arts, Boston and Museum of Modern Art, New York, among others. He lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
Constantine Manos was born in South Carolina to Greek immigrant parents in 1934. His photographic career began in the school camera club when he was 13.
