The photography workshop “The Poetic Encounter” designed, organized and curated by Ilias, was for me an experience that was not only creative but also revelatory. Ilias approaches the work and psyche of each participant with deep understanding and empathy. Very carefully and without any excessive rhetoric he creates channels of communication between the participants, which lead to a meaningful connection between them, something that personally moved me a lot.
Rupture & Repair
The images in this series function symbolically in a negotiation with my thoughts and feelings, my desires, doubts and fears. It is the way to reach my reality, understanding the contradictions of existence, accepting the fragility of human nature. It is the search for a place where there is no thought. It is the whisper that calls me to dwell in it.
