  • Mysterious Hydroessa, Island of Marble by Anargyros Drolapas

    Anargyros Drolapas is a photographer living in Athens, Greece, who studied Physics and IT. More than a profession, photography is a vital necessity to him, he pursues it since 2010 as it allows him to decompress. Anargyros has had two solo exhibitions and various group exhibitions. We’ll take a look at his series Hydroessa.

    He considers himself as “a peripatetic viewer that perceives a chain of events and always manages to stay unnoticed. A collector of images of people and random objects that act as readymades in city’s (or not) environment where he gives birth to a dystopian reality which keeps piling ruin upon ruin and hurls it in front of his feet”.

    Hydroessa is the ancient name of Tinos, a Greek island situated in the Aegean Sea, known for its marbles and sculptures. The project was carried out in 2017, and it’s about the atmosphere of the island emphasized by the sea surrounding it. The mood and colors of the project are infused with marble quarries, a material that symbolizes life and death in Greece.
