Passage to Europe: Northern Lesvos

This is a short study of the landscape in northern Lesvos, one of the several gateways to Europe.

Since the beginning of 2015 millions of people have been crossing through invisible borders seeking better living conditions.

During my visits the past November and January I documented traces of the passage.

Undeniably we have become consumers of endless streams of imagery forging our perceptions in a very distinctive manner through the use of very specific visual language.

My approach on the current situation of immigration flows in the EU, has been deliberately a distant one. This is one of the elements employed in order to offer an alternative reading.

On most situations I prefer to deal photographically with the landscape since I believe it bears facts about any given time and place.

This photo-essay has been recently self-published in an edition of 10, printed on Munken Polar Rough 170g and bound as single page coptic stitch.
