"The estuaries of Acheloos river"
Photo exhibition

The Acheloos river originates from the Pindos mountain range and after a route of 220 km it flows into the Ionian Sea, having formed the Echinades islands from the alluvial deposits of the Acheloos river. The river basin covers a huge area of 5,572 square kilometers and this is the area 15 members of the photography group "Art8" depict in their photos.

photopolis aliagas

Photo Exhibition
Nikos Aliagas

The French - Greek photographer captures the passage of time in faces and landscapes. The black and white photographs with the perceptible playfulness of light and shadows invite the viewer to be drawn to the mystery called "time"

10 – 25/9/2022

Photo Exhibition
Aimilia Balaska

A traumatic experience, the loss of a mother, becomes the narrative context of the series. The original idea was to explore the idea of the home, so I started looking carefully at the photos in my family album. This energy of reminiscing into the past sparked memories and brought to the surface unresolved emotions.

"My mum"
Photo Exhibition
Viet Van Tran (Vietnam)

To me, my mum, 88 years old, is a mirror of her will to rise up in the life and overcome disease. I want to record some moments forever, not only in my mind and heart, but also in a tangible shape. I also chose objects that represent both her life now and objects and images drawn from the past.

"The girls of the lake"
Photo Exhibition
Savvas Kois (Gr)

The project is about domestic violence and specifically the rape of a girl by a father, a violent act not only for her but also for the two sacred concepts, the woman and the family and is based on a local myth about the creation of Lake Kournas in Crete.

"Muay Thai Kids"
Photo Exhibition
Alain Schroeder (Belgium)

Far from Thailand’s iconic tourist destinations, Isan, the kingdom’s largest region, reaches north and east to the borders of Laos and Cambodia. Poverty forces many residents to seek work in Bangkok, but fearing the temptations of city life (drugs, gangs, sex trade…), children are often left behind under the care of grandparents.

"Agri-Cultural Pylons"
Photo exhibition
Vassilis Nebegleriotis (Gr)

The Thessalic flatland stays a key pylon of the primary sector of Greece, through the cultivation of cereals. It is the second largest granary in the country and historically the image of the Thessalic landscape has been identified with that of the flatland. Although the last covers only 36% of the area of Thessaly, it is the one that gives identity and life to the urban countryside of the area.

"Planet C - Reconstruction"
Photo Exhibition
Catherine Chatzidimitriou (Gr)

"Planet C began to form in early 2020. It is an imaginary environment which offers a different way of seeing reality. On Planet C some of my favorite, personal objects begun to lose their usefulness and they were turned into totems and eventually into surreal photographic compositions that were created to symbolize the meaning of confinement, social isolation and the fear of losing life. These emotions firstly reaped through the collective experience of the pandemic and they still destabilize us until today. ".

Photo Exhibition
Streetmax21 (UK)

As a street photographer, I take an observational view of how our present circumstances govern our behaviour individually and in crowds. Progressively, we appear to interact with each other only on a synthetic basis. We attempt to mass connect with the aid of modern technology, but in so doing pay less attention to individual connection.

Renee Revah

"Renee Revah’s photographs push our gaze into deeper waters, to the bottom of the ocean where shipwrecks normally lie. The bodies look trapped in a cloudy green light, sinking rigidly, floating in a fetal position. The intensity of their movements is followed by resignation, moving away and then others taking their place, approaching whilst staring at us
