EXHIBITION
Greek Seas. A photographic journey in time
Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”
FROM 23/07/2018 - TO 31/12/2018

Over the centuries, the Greek sea - inextricably interwoven with the history of the place and with the life of the inhabitants - has not ceased to inspire poets and artists. Following the invention of photography around the middle of the 19th century up until today, countless photographs of the Greek sea have added to the representations of the same subject in painting. Ports, islands, coastal areas, seascapes and scenes from the life of sailors and fishermen have been captured both with a view to their documentation and with artistic intentions. The photographs presented are divided into four chronological sections and they investigate the way in which Greek photographers and their foreign colleagues who visited or lived in the country for long periods of time, approached and interpreted the Greek seas from the mid-19th century until the late 1970s.
