:: Photographic Archive
The photographic material, in the beginning, formed part of the Oral Tradition Archive; as the number of photographs increased, they were separated from it and now constitute a distinct archive.

Around 7,000 photos depict the area of Asia Minor before the expatriation, presenting images of the social and everyday life of the Greeks since the end of the 19th century until 1922. After the 1922 exodus, the place and subject change: photographs of the refugees' settlement in Greece take over.

The material is classified along chronological and regional criteria as follows:

  • life in Asia Minor settlements before the expatriation (1922/1924);
  • photographs from the Asia Minor campaign (1919 – 1922);
  • pictures after 1922/1924 depicting the refugees' settlement in Greece;
  • photographs of CAMS researchers during their missions for the collection of material in Asia Minor and Greece;
  • photographs of CAMS informants along with their CVs.

The entire Photographic Archive has been digitized; a subset of the photographs is available online.




This project is financed 75% by the European Regional Development Fund and 25% from National Resources. The entire Act was included in the Operational Programme "Information Society" of the Ministry of Economy and Finance.
