Reportage and Documentary 2022
ATOMA is an immersion in contemporary Athenian youth
The photographer distanced himself from an Athenian reality disappearing towards senses, textures, colors, shared feelings, dreams and attractions. He followed and Athenian youth that does not project itself into the future, and lives as if suspended in a nocturnal dream.
He sought a balance between reality and fiction, staging and spontaneity, reserve and intimacy with the subjects, met in Athens between 2018 and 2020.
ATOMA is mainly built around blue. Three additional colors are recurrent in the book. The images contain as little diversion as possible, in order to leave a feeling and a free space without imposing a precise narrative or direction. The photographs are taken with film and mainly with continuous light.
