fragmented past

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.

uncertain

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.

abide with me

Part of a group exhibition for a  project led by Noud Heerkens and with a starting point by Breure and Van Hulzen,  we go between the lines of Ingmar’s Bergman “scenes from a marriage”. 
 I deal with the miscommunication between a couple, while playing with narratives and abstractions.
