Eleni Onasoglou: The Blue Land

“We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life”
Nikos Kazantzakis, The Saviours of God: Spiritual Exercises, 1923.

Subtraction of color, interruption of a linear continuum of instants, discontinuance of existence, annihilation of place.

My photographic word is a journey back in time to my earliest memories, to an endless exertion of keeping time frozen, toward a future that looks like it ends up in the beginning.

My inspiration comes from stills of life, forms and past time gazes which slip by. Whatever motivates me leads me mechanically in replicating a vicious circle for an experiential reminiscence of the past and revival of emotions.
