photos by Georgios Voutsinas


Any photograph should twist time-space continuum. Elements of reality attract the photographer's eye. He reacts reflexively and subconsciously, and frames reality, projecting everything he has seen, heard, read, selected and liked in the past in the prospect of the result. This is the way he steals a fraction of reality, immortalizing it, so very small that it is breaking down reality itself, creating a new one of its own, in which the protagonists participate remaining uninvolved. It gives to an infinitensial moment the capability to spread in time, allowing the viewer of the photograph to observe, examine, imagine, transform and in the end differentiate once more reality by projecting his own being. This is the joy of photography we experience and share as shooters or viewers.
