Portraits of Nanos Valaoritis, 2013

Color photographs, Archival inkjet prints, framed, various dimensions. Edition of 3.


How do you meet a poet? What is more, how do you look at him, or rather what do you see by looking at him? But perhaps the main question is how he or she is revealed to you, how he or she stands in front of you and looks at you or lets you look at him or her.

Instead of more words, I submit these images. Because you meet the poet in silence.

The words belong to him or her.

These photographs were created in the home of the poet Nanos Valaoritis in Athens in 2013.
