Under the bridge

During fall Athens Photo Festival 2010 is presenting works of photographic artists at several locations in Athens. On Friday the 19th of November was the opening of the largest exhibition 'Under the bridge' of this festival. Twenty two photographers and 13 newcomers are presenting their works at the Olympic buildings at Delta Faliro.



The most three interesting photos and artists to me are the following:

These photos are made by Polixeni Papapetrou in her serie Between worlds. She is a photographic artist who explores the relationship between history, contemporary culture and identity. Dress-ups and the performance of identity is a main factor in her works.
In this serie she explores the magical affinity that children has with animals and the parallels in their worlds.
This photo is from the China story by Harvey Benge. His photos explore the strange anthropology of cities. The unusual and ignored of the human landscape. He asks the viewer to re-examinate the opinion that photos as documentary are a full representation of the subject.
James Johnson-Perkins and Dimosthenis Agrafiotis brougth a living subject to the exhibition to give more impact to their works.
Two artists with a mutual inspiration of Venice around 1500 and reflecting the human ingenuity in times of crisis.

The exhibition is until the 12th of December (www.hcp.gr).
