“GR€€CI$” is my third photo book, first published as photo e-book only, but now also available in print on high quality photo paper.
“GR€€CI$” is a photographic documentary made in Athens, Greece.
This photo book is about the economic crisis in town, the negative aspects of it and it also shows a lot of positivity as a counterpoint. It is intertwined in two parts: “unfollow” and “follow”; to show opposite forces at work within the oldest existing capital of Europe. Most of these photographs are made in 2013, with just a few exceptions. In the book I switch from B&W to Color to make the contrast between situations to unfollow and to follow more obvious and explicit, but beware I also twist it around. In such a way you do no longer know what belongs to which category. This is photographic poetry: dramatic, supple, surreal, funny, real.
159 Black and white and color photographs.
2 Essays: “unfollow- the state of crisis we’re in” and “follow – the state of uncrisis to get into” with a total of 59 pages. The essays write about the sources of our current economic -, social-, political – and environmental crisis and offer solutions as well.
