‘The Hunter, The Woman & The Hut’ is the result of many road trips exploring the Greek landscape. The photographs are a personal documentation of the modern suburban society and aims to highlight a transitional nature between the past, present and future. With a mix of portraits, landscapes, signs of culture and interiors, this project captures fragments of different ways of life sharing only one common link: the Greek landscape. People closer to nature, a hunter, a hut and elements like the Greek statues and a Macedonian palace for sale, depict a place between utopia and dystopia, unfolding the leading lines of a poetic narrative for the post-crisis era with which the viewer is encouraged to identify.
