The Aegean islands... at the dawn of the 20th century
The exhibition featured two series of photographs dating from the beginning of the 20th century (1908-1913), encapsulating the moment when the concept of the snapshot was born and capturing the contrast between today's professional techniques and the individual viewpoints of the era's amateur photographers.
The first series of pictures reflected the classic genre of travel photography, which was already well-established at the end of the 19th century.
The second series plunged the viewer into the mythological world of the Aegean Islands, as a counterpoint to classical antiquity and the Hellenic culture of Magna Graecia.
This exhibition was a unique opportunity to "visit" these islands, suspended between sea and sky in a timeless dimension, outside the bounds of history.
