OVER STATE . Ilias Georgiadis



Last items in stock

A story of a young and lost person trying to feel free and find love. An emotional exploration of the human condition. An effort to understand how we express freedom, intimacy, closeness; how we seek true connection with the inner self and the other.

"For me, photography is the missing dot that connects what is deep inside us and we cannot understand or describe, with the world. A connection that transcends and moves through spacetime, in unpredictable, mysterious and non-linear ways. A link between reality and love.

I believe we take pictures because our inner self wants to reconnect with the cosmos. We want to feel close to people, places, objects and as the time goes by, we recognise in them a part of ourselves. With photography, we reveal ourselves to the unknown, while preserving a link to the real.

This work depicts my innermost states of fear, desire, affection. Standing between life and death."

Ilias Georgiadis

OVER STATE . Ilias Georgiadis

For me, Ilias’ work pushes boundaries, but ultimately not for stylistic or purely ‘aesthetic’ reasons. It's forceful and courageous, raw in its technique, unflinching in its intimacy… but essentially I believe it's made with and is about, love.

In his beautiful debut book, Ilias tells us where he stands, who he is today. He shows vulnerability, mistakes, imperfections, an anxious need of being recognised, seen, loved. Take a seat in the back of his car and find out where he will lead you. Have an intense, mysterious journey and good luck.
