Historical Context:
In Greek mythology, the role of the environment is a vital part of a divinities' identities. From the series ἱστορία (pronounced Historia), photographer Kristen Hollingsworth merges modern figural representations of Greek gods and goddess over ancient architecture to draw upon the emotions, values, and signs affiliated with each story and recreates the myths for contemporary culture. In this photograph, Apollo is a representation of strength, youth, and archery against the background of the Temple of Apollo in Corinth, Greece.
