It was August, the first month I had moved away from Greece and to the Netherlands. No job or money and I was spending a lot of time at home thinking of my past summers. Going through my 35mm negative rolls I realized that my memories had faded away and if it was not for the photographs my past would have been different. We tend to forget a lot about our past memories. Details get deleted. Our memory works like that. Using a text editor I deleted parts of the photos leading to new results.

2015, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The time before I left my hometown, apartment, job, and life in Greece I found myself taking photos of people in indecisive situations, thinking, weighing options. A state of mind I was currently in.
