Dimitris Letsios: a portrait of Volos

Dimitris Letsios’ work has a rightful place in the history of Greek photography. On view in this exhibition are selected photographs of his native city, Volos, spanning the post-war period. In continuation of his interest in the farmers of the Thessaly plain, here Letsios focuses on working people, children, open-air markets, the landscapes generously supplied by the Pagasetic Gulf. The photographer sought to portray lesser-known aspects of the city ­– instances and images that kept a clear distance from the officially sanctioned ideological façade, revealing an elliptical yet profoundly humane face of the city of Volos.
