- Maria Passarivaki
The area that surrounds Athens is composed by a clumsy controversy, as the vast urban surface meets with the countryside.
All of the photographs of the ‘In Landscapes’ series by Petros Koublis were made less than 50 km away from the heart of Athens, a city that today tries to carry the weight of its own existence, surrounded by the prolonged silence of the old olive groves, the vineyards, or the sea. There is no beauty that is timeless but the timelessness of nature can reflect a new direction, maybe even a hope. It’s not a blissful silence but it’s an inspiring one.
