Le ciel ça sert à quoi sinon à marcher dans la fange
Edition of 100
33,2 x 47,5 cm
The "Le ciel ça sert à quoi sinon à marcher dans la fange" is a 64 pages publication, the pairing of photographer Yannis Drakoulidis and designer Stephan Muller. A city-surveying series printed on newsprint stock that is dedicated to fragments of daily observations; snatches of scenery and dialogue, bathed in Athens' surreal natural light escaping through cracks and nearby windows. The photographer's impressionistic landscapes, clad in ambiguity and ephemeral exhaust, put the grammar in the picture with heady confessional warmth and instants of muted discoveries through the tedium of everyday life.
