DIMITRIS MYTAS photography
An ordinary photographic wandering downtown.
I stand in front of the label “S-CAPE” in red velvet background. I take a photograph.
Back home again.
Search for the root of word Escape in etymology dictionary.
I quote the major findings:
- Escape (verb): escape potentially unpleasant consequences; run away from confinement; literally "get out of one's cape, leave a pursuer with just one's cape”
- Escape (noun): getting away from a place; an inclination to retreat from unpleasant realities through diversion or fantasy
Next time walk with my camera.
A sign “REALITY” flashes in an irrational space contrary to the surrounding ordinary cityscape.
An “S-CAPE” in a non-time “REALITY” land?
Can these interpretations trigger a new photographic research? Can I suggest a breaking point in a futuristic postmodern era?
