METAPolis invites you to the opening of the photographic exhibition of MDM «100 tear drops for racism» with photos of Dimitris the Athens, on Thursday, September 18, 2014, at 20:00. The METAPolis space, at the core of the historic commercial center, Aeolus 48-50, from September 18 to September 27, it is converted to a space of reflection and artistic action against any form of racism.
One hundred women who shed tears on racism and the birth of the project as recounted by Dimitris the Athens:
"It will seem strange and it is the first time I'm saying this, but I had just unwrapped the plastic wrap from a rare vinyl of Massive Attack and listening to the favorite Teardrops when the phone rang. My father was on the other line and told me that my mother had a problem with her eyes. The doctors had said that it was dry eyes or something. At that time the idea was born to immortalize the moment of anguish and the tears bursting down the face.
I photographed two women in the beginning, but then I decided that I wanted to do it bigger and stronger. The two were eventually ten and within a few months I had photographed a hundred women who responded to my call and voluntarily participated. They were not selected and photographed because they were known."
Dimitris the Athens was born in Muscat and now lives in Petralona. Photography fascinated him since childhood. He was involved from an early age professionally, but eventually abandoned it after eight years only to finally return to his first love.
