Kostas Kapsianis explores the Greek countryside, contemplating matters of rural identity and belonging, in the photo-documentary “A Common Story”
This visual story ‘Below the Surface’ is inspired by Photographer Morgan Rachel Levy’s photo series ‘A Strange Sound In The Deep Silence’.
“I attempted to convey the feeling of stepping outside in the morning after a heavy snowstorm, when the sun has just retuned to warm the earth – that precious moment when all the drawings and sculptures of the winter are still visible before they disintegrate.”
Benedetta Ristori’s analogue approach to photographing pre-fabricated socialist structures offers a haunting and blunt look at life more than two decades after the fall of the Iron Curtain.
Radiant colours, contrasting textures and sharp abstractions coalesce in beautifully cropped close-ups, finding beauty in the smallest of details.
These dreamlike photographs, shot on infrared film to produce a hazy and distorted effect, speak to the inherent desire we have to deconstruct and reassemble fragmented images of our past.
