About the work: This series of images is a result of many road trip explorations of the landscape of Greece. These photographs reveal a personal documentation of the modern suburban society, that aims to highlight a transitional situation between past, present and future. With a mix of portraits, landscapes and interiors, faded needlecraft documents fragments of different ways of life with only a main same axis, the greek landscape. People closer to the nature, a hunter, the woman in red and elements as the Greek house entrance and the macedonian palace on sale unfolds the leading line of a nostalgic narrative that viewer is encouraged to identify.
