Petros Koublis

Petros Koublis is an interesting photographer who did a series recently produced a series of work entitled ''In Landscapes'' where he photographed the landscape on the outskirts of Athens, combining images with supplementary text hinting at mythology. The work almost look's like it is from a different world at times, transporting you away from the struggles of Athens through the photography. Th images have a open narrative to them with this timelessness of nature in the photos and there hint's to mythology particularly with the text.

This images is entitled ''Somnolent'' with the caption underneath saying ''Beyond the brittle towns asleep'' December 2012

These images are a good example of how text can be used to supplement an image without framing a particular interpretation too much. The text does add to the image with it's hint's at mythology and an escape from the problems in Athens.
