ATHENS OUT

The project for this gallery started when I read an interview that the famous French photographer Raymond Depardon gave to "Reponses Photo" magazine.

When R.Depardon was in New York in the early '80s with his girlfriend he wandered and photographed
the streets of the city. Because at the time he was too shy to photograph directly the people, as he was walking on the street he he held his camera at the height of his chest and triggered the shutter.

He used a Leica M6 with the 21mm f3.5 lens loaded with Kodak TRI-X pushed to 800 ASA in order to achieve a shutter speed at least 1/500 sec to freeze the human movement.

As he said in the interview,he processed the films,made the contact prints and ... locked them all in his archive's drawers because he never believed that there would be any good images in them, until 28 years later when Steidl editions decided to publish this project,called Manhattan Out.

I felt really inspired from this idea and decided to do the same in my city here in Athens.
Of course I don't have any illusions,Athens is not New York and I'm not R.Depardon,but I think the results are interesting,at least.The project is still open.

Enjoy your visit !
