At a time when migration is a daily event globally, we are returning to the concept of home, and …

Σπίτι μου σπιτάκι μου και σπιτοκαλυβάκι μου, λέει μια παλιά ελληνική παροιμία. Η λέξη «σπίτι» κατάγεται από τη μεσαιωνική ελληνική λέξη ὁσπίτιον (hospitium στη λατινική) που σημαίνει δωμάτιο, σπιτικό, πατρίδα, ξενώνας, κατοικία, οικογένεια. Οικογένεια: σύνθετη λέξη από το αρχαιοελληνικό οίκος και το επίσης αρχαιοελληνικό ρήμα γίγνομαι. Στη φωτογραφική σειρά “Homes Sweet Homes” επιχειρείται μια φωτογραφική προσέγγιση του οικείου, του κοινότoπου που συναντά κανείς στο σπίτι του, σε σπίτια φίλων, οικογενειακές συγκεντρώσεις, σπίτια που ζούσε παλαιότερα και τώρα έχουν εγκαταλειφθεί.

During the exhibition of “Homes Sweet Homes” in Tabya last February, I left a book at the place for the visitors to write their impressions, feelings or thoughts about what they had just seen.

Few days ago, I had the chance to make a workshop with a photographer whose work I admire, Eva Voutsaki. The workshop was about making a photo-book (a dummy) from the early stage of collecting and editing photos, to the final stage of designing and finding ways to publish it. These were 3 days full of inspiration, imagination, fantasy, having nice talks and fun with all the people there. I am really glad I did it and feel full of photographic energy!
