The Thessalic flatland stays a key pylon of the primary sector of Greece, through the cultivation of cereals. It is the second largest granary in the country and historically the image of the Thessalic landscape has been identified with that of the flatland. Although the last covers only 36% of the area of ​​Thessaly, it is the one that gives identity and life to the urban countryside of the area.

 

 There is a rumour about the area of ​​the flatland, that due to its euphoria offers financial comfort to its inhabitants, something which contrasts with my childhood experiences, as I ‘m coming from agricultural family. Motivated from this urban myth, I led to the flatland to explore the structure of stillness in space, something which is coming to ambiguity with the production of goods. The pictures show me the universe of the Thessalic flatland and interrelationship among the earth and human factor, the times are doing circles and perhaps the history with them. 

 

 My ongoing photographic work agri-Cultural Pylons, which started in 2017, is a collection of culture elements of the lowland villages in Thessaly, in order to understand the place where I come from and live.
