Photo exhibition “Back to School”

 

On September 14th, a photo exhibition entitled “Back to School” will be presented at the Hellenic American Union Kennedy Gallery.

The exhibition is being organized by the Hellenic American College (HAEC) in cooperation with Hellenic American University (Manchester, NH, USA) and the Alumni Association of Leonteios School. The launch event shall take place on September 14, 2016 at 20:00 at the Hellenic American Union, 22 Massalias St, Kolonaki.

The exhibition features works by photographers and Leonteios School alumni Andreas Theologitis, Christos Theodorou, Timos Lytras, Panagiotis Mamalis, Anthi Mara, Vaggelis Tzertzinis as well as students Sofia Mamali, Sofia Bekiari and Kostas Periklakis.

The curator of the exhibition, Dr. Kassianou notes that “when we talk about schools we tend to visualize images of people in very specific school areas. They’re usually the same settings through the years because commemorative photos are always taken in these places… Using the unique power of photographic narrative, viewers are invited to follow the eye of these photographers as they wander in classrooms, pause in silence at the library, explore the chemistry lab, listen to the voices of students in the playground, enjoy the choir singing and recall memories looking at the empty stage of the school’s theatre.”

The photo exhibition “Back to School” provides a unique depiction of the Leonteios School as seen through the lens of six contemporary photographers, who are alumni of the school, as well as of three current students. It is a particularly personal reading of the world of the Leonteios School and an emotionally rich pictorial approach to its halls and classrooms.
