Recording thoughts, emotions, and other imprints of her reality, Antigone Kourakou explores the universal dynamic between the natural environment and the human presence, and the capacity of their interaction to transform us.
His photographs, most often taken in his native Greece, startlingly contrast bright light with deep, velvety shadows. His collaborative subjects, most often female, often appear in contorted, twisted, or ballerina poses and alternately in reflective states of yearning, struggle, or lucidity.
In "Transfiguration" , these images are carefully arranged and sequenced with depictions of water, stone, trees, plants, fire, and dilapidated interiors quietly aiding the poetic arc of the book. More revealing with each viewing, this photobook asks more questions than it answers, while inviting viewers to participate in a fictional but tactile world ; one open to exploration and interpretation that gracefully reflects on the exuberance and struggle of existence.
