Thessaloniki: Monuments - bridges between the historic past and today

They are next to us , among us , in various parts of the city , sometimes they stand proudly next to apartment buildings, sometimes bask hidden from grasses, sometimes covered with rubbish and being ignored or passed daily, with the pace of our times . These are the many important monuments of Thessaloniki counting more than 2300 years old and has been a crossroad of civilizations with a rich ancient and Byzantine history. The group photograph κλικ-ers make an attempt to discover the traces of the history of our city crouching over them, revealing details and impressions of the story, recording and playing with sometimes matching and sometimes contradictory integration and coexistence of monuments with the urban environment of today. We are called by our photographic lens to bring the spotlight corners and monuments, remnants of past civilizations, throwing bridges to the historical past and linking them to the current figure of Thessaloniki in 2012.
