The photos of the 25 Years After exhibition comprise 11 different units whose “locus communis” is that their creators studied at the Department of Photography and Audiovisual Arts of Athens Technological Institute. Twenty, ten or five years after their graduation, they either travel or live in Greece and abroad. They belong to the first generation of the Greek photographers who studied photography and lived in an era that the technological advances seemed that they would overturn the built-in values of their means. They lived in an era that the digital technology and the plethora of the pictures seemed to lead to the meiosis and the disdain of photography.
Their work, which covers a wide range of contemporary creative photography, is of such quality that no technological upturn can deprive a good photograph of. The art of photography is not limited to a standard style but, quite contrary, leads the way that the means itself defines. The landscape, the portrait as well as the nature morte, the fashion and the photoreportage are involved in a dialogue where aesthetics and technical perfection show the maturity of their creators.
The choice of the photos, adapted to the limited space of an exhibition, aims at the presentation of only one sample of the photographic corpus, characteristic of their generation.
