Balconies of gray blocks of flats, cobbled streets and small neighbourhoods are depicted in the photos taken by the residents of Athens, showing how they see their city.
All these photos will be exhibited from January 12 to January 24, at the Technopolis in Gazi.
“The concept of the competition ‘The Athenians are photographing their city’ was to give Athens residents and citizens the opportunity to express themselves artistically and creatively and to see the city where they live from another angle,” Anastasia Linardaki, head of the Youth and Lifelong Learning Directorate of the Sport and Youth Organization of the Municipality of Athens, said to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA).
“The photographs are excellent. Some photos depict a more positive side of Athens and others a more negative one. Of course, depending on how you see it, they will be interpreted and analysed by everyone. What we wanted with this initiative was to get people on the road in order to capture moments, scenes, images that were important for them,” she explained and added: “It is worth visiting the exhibition. Each person will see through his or her eyes how other citizens see their city.”
The opening hours of the exhibition will be from 12.00 to 20.00 and entrance for the public will be free.
