Thinking slightly about Z as the winter slowly unrolled in Athens with a lot of police, demos and consumption, people both fed up and careless, a blend of disillusion and disgust muted momentarily by Christmas. A parade to something else coming on..?
[A few of my photographic films or negatives were "lost".. Medium format photographs from Iceland that some like to get just to mess around a bit further or to keep whatever for themselves. There is so much more to answer for those public or private institutional regulators and censors always up to apply to serve the 'cause' and interests. In fact possibly the same pricks (after Berlin & Istanbul with a Leica, or Tanzania with a Mamya) provoke once more electronic mischiefs to a Nikon recently in London and in Greece. An era of unsafe (self) control with reminiscences of fascism disparaging the air. Let's not forget as well that there were a few acts of violence, a lot of manipulation, wiretapping, entering premises and residence from blatent to total non-respect of privacy in the last twenty years .. including a few other additional 'details' about the last ten years across the world while I follow(ed) my own path as much as I can. Who's really the culprit? Too many DETAILS that some complacent institutions & persons don't ignore]
Exit from Greece: a momentous time at night when a dozen of refugees from Syria boarded the bus to Belgrade just after the Macedonian border where my luggage was extensively searched during half an hour so the Syrians wouldn't miss it. So was told a long frightful account of how it is to reach the best parts of Europe and how much comes with it.
