The Voice of the Cicada
Oh, tranquility!
Penetrating the very rock,
A cicada’s voice.
Matsuo Basho, Haiku

This is a project dealing with the slow power of the mundane. Everyday life scenes that stand on the borderline where dream and reality blend together, posing questions as to what is real and what is not.

Profile

Vassilis Vasileiou

Born in 1983, I live and work as a corporate lawyer in Athens, Greece. I am specifically drawn to mundane, everyday life scenes where the boundaries of what is real and what is not start to blend, questioning the way that we perceive our day-to-day routines. Photography is for me this magical procedure that takes reality as its raw material and transforms it into something completely different, making me wonder if what I see in the photograph was even there in the first place.

Jury selection

Vassilis Vasileiou’s anonymous subjects are like pop stars of the mundane. They exist in a world of snappy color and hard lit surfaces; dazzling and impenetrable.
