SHORT EXHIBITION STATEMENT FROM APELLIS GROUP
During the past year, members of our group participated in a photography workshop led by Ilias Georgiadis and through the weekly meetings they got inspired and created their own personal world using the lens of their camera. Part of their works formed the raw material for the creation of photobook, which together with the works shown as well as additional additional material from each participant, will be presented at the exhibition.
