Meraki | 2020
close statement

Greek is not only one of the oldest languages in Europe, but also one of the richest. Given its depth and beauty, one can find words in Greek that are barely translatable in English. In this language, Meraki means to do something with pure soul, love and creativity putting the essence of yourself into your work. Absolute devotion and undivided attention.

With this ongoing series, I created visual poetry with an edge. Beauty and color only act as an end state in this work. Each photograph captures a moment before that state, in which a trench divides two sides of an element. Only by overcoming the two sides and accepting them as complementary protagonist and antagonist, we are able to reach the state of Meraki.
