In this project dominates an extended concept of photographic imagery which overlaps the intimate and common problems of political, cultural, and personal identity of contemporary society. The project subtly combines the possibilities of traditional black-and-white photography and new ways of photography, in order to convey the well-thought-out motives of my creative work. The series Suspended Light: Two Suns is based on the fact that it takes 8 minutes for sunlight to reach the surface of the Earth. In each photograph there is eight minutes gap in between captured Sun light. Unique silver gelatine prints, 4×5 ’in 1/1. Atina, 2018
