PHOTOGRAPHY AS PERFORMANCE

Modern art prescribes and promotes the mixing of species and work across conventional boundaries of “expressive fields”.

The festival was a great opportunity for our international guests, including influential people in the museum/fine art photography scene, to meet the Greek photography community and discover photographers from Greece and Europe as well as to interact each other.
