The tranquility of Ioannina
The tranquility of Ioannina has served as an inspiring motive that incited a diverse group of participants to capture the identity of the city through photography. Refugees, migrants and a local, all residents of the Ioannina Municipality, came together with the aim of depicting their perception of the environment in which they live together. They were able to develop visually a well-rounded discourse on what they relate to the city of Ioannina.
The beauty of life is in direct discourse with the simplicity and mystique of a given place. The still and quiet, the joy of listening to the wind, the beauty of the people, they all offer tranquility and bring about positive thoughts, while cleansing the soul and making one more prone to giving. The energy and the sound of the lake’s waves best depict this very feeling of calmness and safety.
KE.PA.VI.: Contrasting Balances
Wedged between the bustling streets of the city and the tranquility of the lakeside area, the KEPAVI complex* -a transcending place full of contrasts- dominates the scenery. Stepping out of the corridors’ silent shadows into the light, one can see signs of life, persevering despite abandonment. One, then, can experience a sense of balancing tranquility. *KE.PA.V.I.: Centre of Traditional Artisanship of Ioannina
