The essence of «I» is approached from a different point of view through the photographic portraits presented in the parallel exhibition
“I see you”. Young photographers –professionals and students– from Greece, the U.S.A., England, Japan and Lithuania show portraits,
not of themselves but of others. These portraits, impulsive like a snapshot, are not just composed images of a person in a still position.
Each image reveals a window into the world of the person depicted. Each image is a study of a main component of «I» and all the
images together give the experience of life: youth, sensuality, joy, achievement, beauty, loneliness, the passage of time.
