Coins | Konstantinos Tzavelas
I have always felt more familiar with the objects I photograph than with people. One of the blights troubling people in modern metropolitan cities, is boredom. The Greek rebuilding practice, even though proven unstudied and rough, seems to have contributed in combating boredom since it has, unintentionally, led to the creation of a manifold social reality, filled with surprises.
Every time I approach the narrow cadre of the Athens center, I am confronted with adventure, i.e. I am getting stimuli from the outside world, which gradually get formulated within me, through the sequencing of photographs. Sometimes I remember that man who walked the same blocks every day, for many hours repeatedly, looking at the pavement, and always managed to find several lost coins.
