Ephemera, Petros Koublis

Petros Koublis photographs the outskirts of Athens, in areas untouched by the grim picture of the economic crisis. His proposal is actually simple. A recovering of our senses, as to manifest a reconfiguration of the consciousness over the environment we live in. For this is what his photographs are reflecting: the senses of touch, hearing, smell and all the emotions arise by the sight of things around us. In other words, there’s no message or any spectacular idea expressed; it’s a mere visual experience intending to let us feel and recognize a feeling rather than an item. And something more. It’s a proposal that brings into surface for once more the context of poetry in photography, the equivalent as introduced by Alfred Stieglitz, a century ago. Ephemera as we say Equinalents. Enjoy:
