Back to “Global Summer” by Yiorgos Kordakis
Yiorgos Kordakis is a Greek photographer who have some intimate relation with the sea. His series of large format Polaroid called “Global Summer” particularly stuck in my mind since 2008. Fascinated by summer holidays, Yiorgos Kordakis wanted to compare the way people enjoy the summer in very different places like the USA, Romania, Greece or India. Always distant from the subject, he looks for some abstract shapes and lights, using tilt-shift and overexposure. Represented by Karsten Greve Gallery (Paris) and M+B Gallery (Los Angeles).
