Observations from

an Odyssey

2011–12

 

Observations from an Odyssey presents a series of photographs taken in Greece that explore diversity in the Greek landscape and its people during a time of great political upheaval. The series examines the interplay between structures of solidarity and those of fragility within Greece’s rich history and its present day ethos.

 

These photographs illustrate a view of Greece different than that which you might find in travel guides or the mainstream media. They play with the idea of narrative—a staple of documentary photography—but tell a story in a non-linear way. The diptych structure in this exhibition introduces a duality and reinforces the fact that both the pessimistic and optimistic aspects of life unfold together. These are observations.
