On Tuesday 23 April the gallery “7” presents the photography exhibition of AKIS DETSIS entitled: “Imprint”.

Costas Goudis says: “Photography as a signifying surface is a concept in the theory of image and communication that suggests that photography is not just a representation of reality, but a complex structure of symbols and meanings as each photograph consists of multiple signs and elements, signifiers and signifieds, that make up the image. That is, it suggests that the photograph functions as a language: the elements of the image are like the letters or words that make up a sentence.

Akis Detsis in his series “Imprint” explores precisely the dimension of photography as a significant surface through the depiction of the landscape. Each image in the series is a canvas where natural and man-made elements leave their own mark, their own imprint and the imprint that is formed in the memory and consciousness of the photographer.”
