"Tress interviewed children about their dreams and nightmares, and then collaborated with them to make their dreams into still photographs. They’re haunting and bizarre and cool. These were all made between 1971 - 1974."
There is an exhibition at the Thessaloniki Musem of Photograpy, at the Port that will last just couple of more days. His name is Arthur Tress. I never heard of him before, and this meeting was unexpected. The show presents many of his works, things you can’t see in the net. His photographs are capturing and hypnotic. His play with reality was a supreme experience. There is his disturbing, irrational, yet humorous point of view, laughing down to what is light and dark in/outside of all. Don’t miss it if you happen to be near.
Unprecedented measures imposed during economic crisis to squeeze more out of taxpayers proves unpopular with Greeks.
Enfia used to be a temporary measure, now permanent insane tax that will bring people in Greece to civil war, I am sure. I hope for that. I believe in in our, your total final overwhelming disgust of political stupidity.
"How many times have we set sail, how many
Times have we been shipwrecked: play, play,
Change the deck of cards: measure all things
With the joy that beautifies them: you may hope
That even tomorrow will dawn: you may exist,
The light falls on you: you may see
Your face in the faces of men."
