Exhibition 'LOOKING THE “OLD” PHOTO ALBUMS' οf  Nikos Vardakastanis, photographer and artist. 

Extracts from a text on the exhibition on the exhibition by the photographer himself:

The people portrayed through my lenses, families with children but also couples or adults who the refugee crisis left homeless and forced to travel under difficult circumstances, are searching for an escape from the war hell. To them, these pictures have a special meaning because they constitute a “network of memories and meanings”: a picture at the wall of their personal room-shelter, an electronic archive that was sent to a relative that stayed back or waits to welcome them in Europe.  

Exhibition “ROADS OF SURVIVAL”, which belongs to the Hellenic Parliament and the Photo Press Union of Greece, displays photographic recordings of the forced journey of refugees (the road of survival). It consists of photographs by experienced and well-known photojournalists. The list includes the following:

Haris Akriviadis, Vasilis Asvestopoulos, Vasilis Ververidis, Christina Zachopoulou, Alexandros Zontanos, Michalis Karayiannis, Dimitrios Karvountzis, Yannis Kolesidis, Eleni Kouri, Maro Kouri, Ilias Koutouloyenis, Manolis Lagoutaris, John Liakos, Marios Lolos, Stelios Matsagos, Andrianos Meltzanis, Stelios Misinas, Panagiotis Moschandreou, Tatiana Mpolari, Leonidas Bakolas, Yannis Behrakis, Orestis Panagiotou, Georgia Panagopoulou, Chryssa Panousiadou, Symela Pantzartzi, Giannis Papanikos, Lefteris Pitarakis, Antonis Pasvantis, Michalis Patsouras, Thanasis Stavrakis, Grigoris Siamidis, Stelios Stefanou, Dimitris Tosidis, Konstantinos Tsakalidis, Kostas Tsironis, Mehmet Ayhan, Andrea Bonetti, Hodo Oldi, GhulamullahHabibi, Barda Mohammed, Youssef Badawi, Barda Mohammed, Atef Safadi.
