Project info

SKG is the International Air Transport Association code for the city of Thessaloniki, located in Northern Greece. Thessaloniki has always been considered as one of the most beautiful cities of Greece, atmospheric, erotic, mysterious and vivid. Thessaloniki for many decades of the 20th century played a central role in Macedonia and the wider Balkan area. However, the lights and shine for Thessaloniki fell sharply a few years before Greece faced economic depression.

This project deals with the transformation of this area from a bright, extrovert and vibrant place, into a place which is dominated by aesthetic and social decline. It is a record of the urban and suburban landscape , with sceneries which are placed at key points of the city and the wider area.

Selected images of "SKG" are part of the "Depression Era" collective project, with the title "Non-Places of Transition".
