Last destination for Photometria Awards 2020 “Stalk me”: Naousa!

 

People that never sleep. Open screens and we spectators and spectacles at the same time. People staring up at us, a curiosity about the lives of others. We, first of all, photographing the unexpected and the random, before it gets lost in endless time. Because it’s our insatiable curiosity that pushed us there. A photo shoot on the street, a persistent look at the hidden or at something that we hadn’t even noticed until now, an obsessive glance. From Sophie Calle’s camera at the “Suite Venitienne” to the modern London’s street surveillance cameras. We live in a time where technology enables a continuous and two-way Panopticon. An endless surveillance of which we do not always know on which side we are. An instinctive need to see and be seen. Stalk us!

 

The venues where the photo exhibition will be hosted will observe the sanitary protocols and the visitors will enter, as defined by the new measures of the co-competent ministries, in order to avoid the spread of Covid 19.

 

Duration: 13- 20.11.2021

Hours: 11:00-14:00 & 17:00-21:00

Exhibition space: “Kamini”, Naousa

Opening: 13.11.2021 at 20:00

Entrance: free
