“The Observatory”, Athens Photo Festival 2018

The “Observatory” is a construction within a construction, a mechanism that bridges proximity with distance, a switch between passive and active control, an attempt to defamiliarize the bearer of representation in order to regain its content, an experience of reflected gaze, an experiment of reverse reconstitution of the photographic act. 

Welcome to the “Observatory” of the new social reality’s subjects.

A collective work by Yorgos Karailias, Yannis Karpouzis, Yorgos Prinos and Pavlos Fysakis.

Athens Photo Festival 2018, Benaki Museum, Athens.
