A Graffiti ARCHIVE Presentation. A Conversation with Demetri Efthyvoulos–Spirits of the Rainforest
A few years ago I bought a piece of equipment that would allow me to convert my old “Graffiti” shows from tape format to digital. For years that piece of equipment languished–sealed in the shipping box it arrived in. Why? Well time and circumstance certainly played a part but it was the thought of going through the tapes of my early shows was truly daunting. I have hundreds upon hundreds of tapes. Boxes filled with them. A few night’s ago I finally broke through the resistance and began shuffling through my tapes.
Tonight on “Graffiti” you’ll listen to my conversation with Demetri Efthyvoulos about his seven years in the Peruvian Amazon and the exceptional photographs he took at that time.
Unfortunately, I didn’t date the tape–something I was usually scrupulous about doing. I think the show had to be taped either in the late ’90’s or in the early part of the new century. It is also unfortunate that I cannot find anything on the internet about him after the 2004 interview (here in two parts–PART 1 and PART 2) he did while in London.
There are two other sites (see below) about him but neither of them seem to have any new information. The only other reference I could find was to a Demetri Efthyvoulos who had gone into the ministry. Maybe it’s him.
****Some late breaking news**** Demetri’s son, David, has contacted me (see his note in the “JUST YOUR THOUGHTS” comment section) and tells me his father will be honored later this month (June 2011) by the government of Cyprus. Bravo Demetri!
