WE ARE GREECE

Greece, known first of all for its mythology and for being the home of Western civilization, is back at the center of world attention for the economic crisis and the new political situation.

 

The word crisis means also change and return to the roots, it invites to remember that Europe is a Greek word itself. We all are and always will be Greece.

 

In this work I’ve mixed the heroes and heroines of mythology with elements of contemporary world and the struggling of young generation to go through the crisis. It’s a real personal interpretation and each one is called to agree with it or to give his or her own one.

 

The pictures are taken both with analog and digital cameras and they are printed mixing six analogue techniques using sometimes also collage. In the choice of the printing techniques there is also the connection of past and present: the dark room meets Photoshop taking the best from this two worlds.

Odysseus - We are Greece

Message: fighting seduction of consumerism and call centers Technique: iron salt print (cyanotype) on cotton paper The Myth: Odysseus or Ulysses, was the king of Ithaca and one of the most important man in the Trojan war. He is famous for the ten years he took to return home to his wife Penelope. During his journey he met the Sirens: he asked his sailors (who plug their ears with beeswax) to tie him to the mast to hear the enchanted beasts sing.
