The images in my ongoing project “Dichotomy” are rooted in their literal meaning. A division into two parts. A subdivision into halves or pairs . A division into two mutually exclusive or contradictory groups. It’s this logical rationale that informs the pictures of the series “Dichotomy”, each set relative to the other yet wholly independent. A series of relationships we are asked to explore, form. A subjective view of ordinary life, places and objects that are imbued with their own history. A story about Athens , but also a story for every city that is built by society and is left to fend.
All images are produced with 35mm film. The series Dichotomy will be presented at The pulse Gallery in Athens in June 2016.
