Samos 1983

Greece, Samos – July 1983

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #158 is ‘Along back country roads’.

The airport of Samos is just near a beach. Luckily there were about two flights a day. The backroads of the Greek islands are the ferry services between them.

Ephesus 1983

Turkey, Selcuk/Ephesus – July 1983

The theme for this week Lens-artists challenge #157 is ‘getting away’.

Near Selçuk in the west of Turkey, one can find the excavation of Ephesus. This is the Marble Road, looking down to the library of Celsus at noon on a very hot day. The negative is damaged, but it was one of the first times I dared to trespass because the contradiction between past and present was that stunning. In 1983 Turkey was ruled by a regime of generals, and taking photographs of anything military was forbidden. The young soldiers passed us going down the hill, and I could not resist to take this photos in this ancient setting. Quickly and a bit nervouws, so I did not pay too much attention to properly measure the light. But I have the photo and I got away with it :-).

La Défense (Blocs)

France, Paris – January 1989

The theme for this week Lens-artists challenge #157 is ‘getting away’.

La Défense is a big, modern office area in Paris. I remember my teacher for French saying she did not like it at all, too modern, on the old axe of the Champs Elysées and Louvre. Years later I was curious about the area and went there on a long weekend trip, hoping for some nice images. Feeling small between the buildings of big companies, rising high up over the skyline of Paris. An alienating place, where human size did not seem to matter.
