This exhibition presents the participations that stood out in the Athens Photo Inspiration 2011. The thematic frame of the competition focused on the contemporary face of the city. Each theme is approached literally and metaphorically and can either be the motive or the main axes of the picture. The unprecedented participation and desire for creativity were once again the characteristics of this original cultural event, which consists a benchmark and a meeting point for the friends of photography. In this exhibition are presented the 23 photographs that were awarded by the audience and the judging committee. The different approaches, based on the viewpoint of each photographer are the presupposition for dialogue and creative thinking. The photographs presented in the exhibition are direct comments or responses to these themes, and comprise a proposal open to different readings on behalf of the viewers. Every thematic unit, beyond the obvious elements, is just a reason for the inspiration to be transformed into an artistic creation.
