Φύση – Κρίση

This is a group of photos which involve a kind of “chronicle”.

A chronicle about greek crisis which is primarily cultural,as it is suggested to be by this “journal of a death foretold”which we have here.

Photos taken from the nature representing and reflecting situations and events which in my opinion were driving to the today’s crisis.

The titles appear-usually in the upper left section of the photographs-serve as a ‘stamp’,like those to be found on the crates of transit trade.

It is from the appearance of the stamps on the crates for the transporting of cargoes or for the transfer of meanings that we perceive the”content”of the photograph and its notation in each instance.

The consequent question is whether and to what degree nomenclature pre-empts the system of values to which each of its references is directing us,or whether these same values (spiritual values,the offspring of our humanist civilisation)have,on our responsibility,been circumvented or are appearing,through bankrupt systems,to be in the process of being stifled by the inflationary degradation and distortion with we -willy-nilly-have endowed them.

Is it that nature and our life are used as a commodity,through the crisis which both these two extraneously defined parameters are undergoing?

My proposition is not simply to awaken the awareness, to develop,also,the critical dimension in the face of what we are experiencing, but above all to stimulate the inner resirtances in the face of a crisis which is primarily cultural,as it is said above.

These works present in its sub-soil,if one looks more deeply,pregnant with a life-giving hope for its resetting and reversal,stressing-as is often the case in nature -the potentialities for reconstitution and rebirth.
