This series of images is a result of many road trips exploring the Greek landscape. The photographs reveal a personal documentation of the modern suburban society that aims to highlight a transitional situation between past, present and future. With a mix of portraits, landscapes and interiors, “Faded Needlecraſt” documents fragments of different ways of life sharing only one common link: the Greek landscape. People closer to the nature, a hunter, a hut, and elements like a Greek house entrance and a Macedonian palace for sale describe a situation between utopia and dystopia, unfolding the leading lines of a nostalgic narrative with which the viewer is encouraged to identify.
