Dancing With the LightTzeli Hadjidimitriou
13 – 17 March, 2018
Opening night Tuesday 13 March, 2018, 6-8pm
Greek photographer and travel writer Tzeli Hadjidimitriou shares with us various moments from Lesvos, the island where she was born and raised and Kythera the island she fell in love many years ago, while avoiding the superficial ease of digital photography and its modern gaze. The two islands emerge in Hadjidimitriou’s photographs through their diverse “nature”. This natural diversity is above all due to the light; not just the sunlight but also the light of the moon and the stars.
The photographs of Lesvos and Kythera, are not simply a presentation of a beautiful landscape. They invite us to hear the sounds of its waters, calm and stormy, to feel the heat of its earth, burnt by the sun, gaze at its moonlight, feel the humidity of its forests. Hers is an insider’s view, a view through the eyes of the heart. Tzeli shares with us her love for Lesvos and Kythera.
Dancing with the Light is presented in association with the Greek Festival of Sydney.
