Figure 2. "Man from Sfakia, 1939." This image is part of Nelly's 1939 photo project in Sfakia commissioned by the Metaxas regime which focuses on male, often formally dressed, figures in mountainous settings. When I brought these images to the field, my interlocutors insisted on writing down the names of the sitters who, as a rule, appeared anonymous in the archive and in two published editions of the mid 2000s featuring some of these images. Viewers identified this particular sitter as Sifis Lefas (nicknamed Horeftis and Efoplistis). Copyright Benaki Museum Photographic Archive.
