Festival Year :
For me, photography is the missing dot, connecting what is deep inside us that we cannot understand or describe, with the world. A connection that transcends and moves through spacetime in unpredictable, mysterious and non-linear ways. A link between reality and love.
I believe we take pictures because our inner self wants to reconnect with the cosmos. We want to feel close to people, places, objects, and as time goes by, we recognise in them a part of ourselves. With photography, we reveal ourselves to the unknown while preserving a link to the real.
This is a story of a young and lost person trying to feel free and find love. It is an effort to understand how we express freedom, intimacy, and closeness and seek genuine connection with the inner self and the other.
This exhibition is outdoors. Please check what COVID-19 restrictions are in place before you visit.
Born in northern Greece, Ilias Georgiadis started experimenting with photography at the age of 19. After extensive travels in 2011, he stopped his university studies and started obsessively making pictures. Ilias is interested in the social and interpersonal tensions of human nature. He started exploring the subject in 2012 and continues to this day. Ilias's debut series of work Over.State has been shown in various international festivals, solo and group shows worldwide, and has been featured in online and printed publications.
