To Φεβρουάριο του 1995 στα πλαίσια της Photosynkyria  στη Θεσσαλονίκη, έγινε μια έκθεση φωτογραφίας με τον τίτλο: «τα κρόσσια της πόλης». Εκείνη την εποχή έκανα τη θητεία μου σα … ναύτης αλλά κατάφερα να συμμετέχω. Μία από τις φωτογραφίες από τότε, με οδήγησε πρόσφατα σε μερικές σύντομες ανεπεξέργαστες καταγραφές του ίδιου θέματος.

“Reality” as a Modell

A in-between stage of a plan

This is just a in-between stage of a plan. A break on my carpet work doing something else for two days, like I said here >>

In July, there was a pause for me working on something else but since the first of August I am watching again almost every day this thousand lines on the screen. I realise this now because I have again a break doing something else for two days. I call it “the carpet” because it last so long to finish a façade, and as soon as the plans are finished, something chances in the wishes or the needs for the building.

"The fifties"

The architect would say fascinated: “the fifties!”
I am not sure if this or other typical “fifties fascinations” are really plant or built in the fifties. Maybe many of them came from the fifties and the sixties. You can find examples less or more often, in many countries. It is something that makes you imagine that, these kind of buildings are a product of a short time of beauty after the Second World War and before the mass-market-media era. Maybe we see in a subconsciously manner some appearance of the beauty from the visionary way of thinking on the twenties, which unfortunately capped from two big wars and the fascism. This optimistic view passed thru to the new generations in the sixties and the early seventies. But, it’s capped again. Some buildings remain and the Swiss bank can buy their beauty.

Work, work, work

Actually I don’t have time for bloging because I work a lot the last months, almost since the beginning of this year. (I work for this office of an ex professor from my studies in the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf). But at the same time see a lot, I take many pictures and I made some old and new syllogisms witch I would like to notice here. I try to use English so I don’t have to write in two languages (Greek and German). I said to myself, that at this period the only thing it is permitted for me to do in this blog, is to put some pictures. Some English words under the photographs will be enough. But even that is lot of work because I produce every day new pictures in a half journalistic way.  

I will keep trying with better time management.
