"Rusted Trains"

Chatzikyriakidou Kyriaki

With the cooperation of the Café bar “Spiti mou”

1-30 November

Time is a factor of everyone’s life, even of an object’s life. Time never forgets and this is why neither the rusted trains can be forgotten by time. The mystery that is hid behind these trains and the idea that someday in the past, there were people in them, made us have the willing of watching them through the lens. A photograph may give sense to something that thought to be meaningless and make the person looking at it travel back in time. Moreover, a photograph may be the reason for thoughts about a hidden truth, existing in our midst, but we are unable to see it. A train’s life is the same as a person’s life, meaning that at the beginning when it’s new, is also useful and welcomed by others, but with the passing of time becomes old and forgotten in time.
