THE PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY - Cyclades Sightlines 2016

 

Itinerary and analog / film photography diary

In summer 2016 I spend almost three months sailing around the aegean sea and the  cyclades. Some of the destinations I visited includes: Athens ( Akropolis, Plaka ),  Delos, Mykonos, Serifos, Sifnos, Folegandros, Antiparos, Paros, Naxos, Koufonisi, Amorgos, Syros ...

The purpose of the journey was a kind of mind reset,  creative insight or time away and active pause from the city life. Sometimes our mind is blocked,  it frames our whole perception in a fixed domain ... you have the feeling that your are trapped, you can not go on, you can not evolve  ... you are stuck. At this point  you need  a reset ... a journey was my response ...

My thoughts are still undeveloped but the guide concepts during the journey were: space, vision, sightline, songline, knowledge, identity, history, nostos.


Songline* - Within the animist belief system of Indigenous Australians, a songline, also called dreaming track, is one of the paths across the land (or sometimes the sky)[1] which mark the route followed by localised 'creator-beings' during the Dreaming. The paths of the songlines are recorded in traditional songs, stories, dance, and painting.
A knowledgeable person is able to navigate across the land by repeating the words of the song, which describe the location of landmarks, waterholes, and other natural phenomena. In some cases, the paths of the creator-beings are said to be evident from their marks, or petrosomatoglyphs, on the land, such as large depressions in the land which are said to be their footprints.  [ wiki ]

Sightline*  - A sightline, sight line or visual axis, is a normally unobstructed line-of-sight between an intended observer (or spectator) and a stage, arena, or monument, for example. Sightlines are a particularly important consideration in theatre and stadium design, road junction layout and urban planning. In cities such as London, construction within sightlines is restricted to protect the key views of famous landmarks.

Objects that have a direct line of sight with one another are said to be intervisible. [ wiki ]
