Photographic Project "Inside Out"


Photographic project "Inside Out" shows different people of Syros experiencing a "private and intimate" moment in open spaces of the island. How authentic are we beyond the boundaries of "intimate home"? How much of public space do we allow to become part of our intimacy, part of our everyday history?

This photographic work developed in six [6] stories with different main characters, in different parts of Ermoupolis


The Sleeping Man

A handsome young man, wearing pajamas, socks and holding his pillow, sleeps wherever he feels is his Home; probably anywhere in Ermoupolis. Today, he chooses to sleep on the bar of a cafeteria. As photographer Maria Merkou notes, «The moment of sleep fully reflects α sense of ”Home” intimacy. It leaves no room for pretexts and lying, a strictly personal and yet common experience».
