The 7th Edition of the Young Greek Photographers 1998
attracted works of more than 100 young artists. The photographers whose works are included at this
year's exhibition were selected by a five-member jury in the beginning of February, so their names
were not yet known during the printing of this catalogue.
The presentation of the photographic production of young Greek artists, was included for the first
time, in 1987, in the programme of the International Month of Photography in Athens.
Since it's first presentation, this exhibition developped its own dynamic, which became clarified
during the next editions of the International Month of Photography, in 1985 1991. This dynamic, plus
the need to enforce independent consitution that would produce young artists and help their work to
get acquainted with a wide audience, were the main factors of deciding to reinstate this event from
1995 on annual basis.
The exhibition's visitor will have the opportunity to constate different inclinations which the young
artists have developped. The reflections of these inclinations as well as the improved quality of art
photography in Greece, are obvious in these works.
These young artists have composed their own "panorama", with boldness, imagination , sometimes
also with a conservative mood, constructions and experiments with materials and techniques. Straight
photography, documentary, social, directed and constructed photography, narrate memories, fears and
desires –the way they see the world.
