A photographic project
July 19 - 23, 2017
In collaboraion with: Municipality of Delphi, Photography Center of Thessaloniki
Tutor: Vassilis Karkatselis
In this year’s ANIMART a photography project will be held in Amfissa, with the aim of capturing everyday life and the natural environment: the famous olive grove and the wider Delphic landscape.
This project originates as a prosforon (an "offering", in Orthodox liturgy) that we found by chance while walking around Amfissa, a city of mainland Greece.
When we revisited Amfissa the following year, it was July: downtown reminded us of the cities painted by Giorgio de Chirico. Shadows were everywhere, like silence and nothingness. Just like the city, which for some reason had been abandoned by its inhabitants! But they were resting, free from the cares of life, behind their half-closed shutters. Enjoying their afternoon coffee, the rest of the day passed so fast – bringing hope, as always, for a promising nightlife. Some might glance at the dregs of their coffee cups, looking for a sign. A little further on, in Delphi, their ancestors used to try to predict the future by listening to the whispers of a woman named Pythia.
Photographers – Greeks and foreigners – will come from Albania, Korea, Australia, the USA – and along with the locals will share their knowledge, talents and love for this specific art. They will navigate, discover and capture the visible and invisible sites of this city. They will present the results of their experience for the judgement of the world and posterity.
