2017 - Carte Blanche
Yiannis Pantelidis observes the landscape stretching beyond the city and relying on it. For the past five years, he chose his native land, Thessaloniki, as the ground for his photographic quest.
His aim is to approach the invisible boundary, the space where city and nature intertwine. Humans are not necessarily present in it. Every detail of the landscape is captured with both a topographical approach and a meticulous gathering of information.
The photographs show a lot and suggest even more, whereas everything if left almost untouched, as if the work was pending.
