"Greece of contradictions. Journey to light along with notable photographers " Varvouni Panagiota, Kourtidi Anastasia

People say: “One Picture - A Thousand Words”. How many images do we recall, when we think about Greece? Infinite… The sun is totally connected to our country. A country that has inspired during the ages a great number of artists, a country that has been praised by the most important Greek poets…This research tries to make the meaning of the daylight under a new perspective.

No other meaning could bring us closer to the real nature of the daylight than the art of photo-graphy, which is a unique way to display the reality around us. The artists themselves give us a tour to the magical world of the photography. Our research is based on the theories, the experiences, the techniques, the way of work and the perceptions of the following photographers: G.Athanasopoulos, G.Gerolympos, G.Depollas, P.Kokkinias, N.Markou, N.Mei, H.Papaioannou, N.Panagiotopoulos. The conversation with them opened a new way to see the reality about the truth or the myth of daylight.
