Maybe this is the must see in Athens in June –July…

The Athens Photo Festival has done a great job presenting amazing projects of Greek and international photographers under the wider expression of the exhibition’s title ”Reframe Memory”. The exhibition is mainly presented in Benaki Museum, Pireos Annexe. It includes projects of Greek and international photographers. Moreover, some of the projects are created with the support of consulates and institutes, giving ,thus, the opportunity to the artists to extend their research and have more interesting results.

The most interesting part of the exhibition is the fact that one can see the different impressions of memories and how these can be expressed. Other artists use their own personal experiences, others do research with social and anthropological interest, etc. In the same way, the presentation of each work has a very unique character, creating different sentiments to the viewers. One word, though, comes up from all works: nostalgia.

It is a very good exhibition that if one is currently in Athens, should visit it. There are a lot of participants and one will need at least a couple of hours to see the whole exhibition. In the same building there are also the photo Festival’s “Recorded Memories” exhibition, the “Memory Lab”, “Young Greek Photographers” and the “Photobook Show”.
