New ruins

Twenty-five years ago Avraam Pavlidis began to photograph interiors, unseen microcosms from the innards of Greek provincial life. His penetrating gaze insisted on the theme of abandonment as a pious pilgrim to the ruins left behind by fading life and advancing modernity. After 2010, and while the country had suddenly gone into the deep waters of the crisis, he turned to the abandoned facilities of an industrial society that used to produce mass products and behaviors, such as factories, camps, hotels, psychiatry.

Pavlidis becomes witness to the ruins created by fierce competition, accelerating speed and veiled violence of progress, traveling across the country with the constant motivation to see an image he hasn't seen before.
