MET-EIKASMA

the image that remains momentarily in the sense of sight after its external stimulation

 

 

This series is made after the extreme shock I had, due to the tragic death of 102 fellow citizens, by the wildfire that burst suddenly out on 23.07.2018 at the region of Mati, (Eastern Attiki, Greece). I do remember many of them, I knew personally some of them. Their “burned” shadows haunted my thoughts for months. I choose to remember them in their daily activities as passers by, in front of my house. At that incident, my mother, my sister and my niece were saved due to an extreme luck.
