“In Limbo” is a visual exploration of the emotional impact to the Greek people, particularly those of the Greek capital of Athens, as the current and on-going crisis has burst into their lives.
It is a crisis that started as economic but soon became social and humanitarian and has affected irrevocably the perceptions and the psyche of a whole nation and what was thought as “granted”.
My photographic exploration is suggestive, taking the pulse of the street that is not longer bustling with commercial vibrancy or even a fake euphoria, as up until a few years ago, but an ineffable mixture of frustration, sadness and anger, penetrates “the every moment” of people’s lives.
The “granted” is now taken back, day by day, year after year, and this regression is experienced as a series of painful losses in the form of loss of income, of security, of happiness and of human dignity.
“In Limbo” is a compilation of quasi-journalistic images of the past four years, but the stories behind the pictures have been stripped away. My intention was to produce something lyrical rather than informational.
