‘There is no beauty that is timeless but the timelessness of nature can reflect a new direction, maybe even a hope. It’s not a blissful silence but it’s an inspiring one.’ Photographer Petros Koublis, Athens, Greece
The images of this project were made around the outskirts of Athens, less than 30 miles away from the heart of the capital. It is the area that surrounds the depressed city and all the millions of its citizens’ individual stories.
Outside the invisible borders of the extended metropolitan area, in the land that lies past the edge of the city, time seems to move parallel but in a different density.

This is an alternate state in parallel time, where silence seems to carry inside it a waiting, patiently whispering a long forgotten language. >>>>
