Athens in the focal point of global publicity. Diverse aspects of the city are portrayed through conflicting images that are difficult to interpret, as the terms “Beautiful" and "Ugly" challenge our everyday aesthetics. A false sense of laxity and comfort is in effect a misfigure of reality, normalizing illegitimacy and the paradox of abnormality. As a result, the most bizarre and engaging images develop.
Artists use the medium of photography to depict the paradoxal oddity and rash development of our aesthetic surroundings. Images, animated and still, opt to suggest a different perspective by means of emphasizing issues that currently may leave the viewer indifferent.
What is there to be interpreted? What do we discard? We keep it all.
