The archive of employees from the abandoned “Britannia” textile factory was rescued from oblivion and is now a source of tremendous wealth of information. Over 3000 men and women worked there at some point from the late 40s to late 70s, and their portraits and records tell a lot of tales of everyday life in the factory. Further examined as a sociological set of data, this archive gives a valuable insight to the social geography, the urban pull, and the internal immigration of the era, as well as the rise and fall of the textile industry in Greece.

A documentation of images that are almost always sidestepped by the eye. Fresh or not-so-fresh remains of animals are an inconvenient reminder of our own vulnerability and mortality. The effort to maintain the illusion of immortality and eternity needs (at least in our opinion) to be sabotaged. Life is preferable to death, but both are equally natural. We don’t consider these images as graphic, but understand that most will. Viewer discretion is advised.   Photography by Leeo Smutzig.

The transition of body to corpse is usually followed by decomposition and the release of components back to the environment. This process, depending on the surrounding conditions, can be quick, slow, or partial. Sometimes it can even be completely halted, trapping otherwise useful material in a state of stasis. Considering that life is one continuous recycling movement, one could argue that all these dead animals have found themselves “in a pickle”.   Photography by M. Nikitaki.

Three friends, a swimming pool, a camera, a toilet bowl, and a bunch of goldfish. A fun underwater experiment but also a reflection on matters concerning borders, isolation, the end of a season, and the inescapable need to surface every once in a while.   Photography by B. Xerikos.

Sepolia is an old neighborhood of Athens which was incorporated into the city grid in 1893 and was rapidly urbanized during the1960s. Periplaneta americana is a cockroach species with cosmopolitan distribution which populates all major cities in the world. Sharing a common space with this insect is very challenging, but it can also be very interesting, educational, and full of surprises.
