“In Limbo” is a suggestive personal record of the state of flux and insecurity of the Greek people, particularly those living in the Greek capital of Athens, during a period of six years when the current and on-going economic recession is bursting into their lives.  It is a crisis that started as economic but soon became social and humanitarian and has affected irrevocably the perceptions and the psyche of a whole nation and what was, for a long time, delusively perceived as granted.  My photographic exploration is suggestive and restrained, avoiding to succumb to the easy poverty porn, instead taking the pulse of the street that is not longer bustling with commercial vibrancy or even a fake euphoria, but an ineffable mixture of frustration, sadness and anger, penetrates “the every moment” of people’s lives.  The “granted” is now taken back, day after day, and this regression is experienced as a series of painful losses in the form of loss of income, of security, of happiness and of human dignity.   “In Limbo” is a compilation of quasi-journalistic images, but the stories behind the pictures have been stripped away. My intention was to produce something lyrical rather than informational.
