In the last two decades, Staveris has photographed countless characters of the Greek society and has focused almost in all hidden aspects of the Greek reality. With his personal, artistic insight, he portrays details that are seductive, sensitive, funny, melancholic, tragic, coming from completely opposite worlds, but always real and human. He photographs with the same reverence and respect politicians, actors, hookers, junkies, businessmen, and popular singers. Thus, in an almost magic way, he always succeeds in bringing up their own personal “truth”, either from snapshots, or from designated portraits.
In addition, personal space has always been of great interest to Staveris – as much as the person that resides in it. For the first time, presents a series of photographs of interiors each one with its own stories, as these are portrayed through the objects, the furniture, etc.
So, why the title Facebook I? Staveris himselfgives us the answer: “The exhibition works a bit like Facebook, because I always leave space to people. I never have a predesigned aspect in my photo shoots. The result works like “opening” a friend’s photos portfolio in his facebook profile. In the same way that one can judge or assume things through a selection of photographs that are “open” to public, one can understand the people that are portrayed in this exhibition. They are all human beings who are self-defined and selfdirected.
