Yorgos Yatromanolakis photographs the liminal moments between night and day, and the transformation of nature. In this poetic way, he aims to capture and reflect the process of inner metamorphosis.

 

The Greek photographer had to return to his homeland unexpectedly. As a consequence, he stood face to face with his traumatic past and memories. Artistic practice became a rite of passage for him during that time. In The Splitting of the Chrysalis & the Slow Unfolding of the Wings, he slowly distances himself from all things familiar and intimate. Photography allows him to create a new world – a mysterious and liminal space, in which he moves towards achieving fulfilment and discovering a new existential reality.
