This photograph belongs to the series 'Isolation Games.' At the dawn of 2020, as the world receded into quarantine, our lifestyles were consequently fraught with apprehension. The surreal stillness shifted routines and psychologies across the board. While passing the time at home during isolation, these photographs depict distraction and amusement in a newly-skewed world.
What could we muster as a reliable distraction within these walls and among the frenzy outside? Something about wood's warm texture, fresh-baked goods, and side-yard spring flowers flickered with hope during April lock-downs. We embraced 5,000+ years of chance and strategy among creature comforts scattered on the old coffee table. Copacetic, for now.
Christos is a 1st-gen Greek-American fine-artist whose photographs probe themes of socioeconomics, culture, history, and architecture. As strong symbolic sparks in a frenetic 21st-century, his creative intrigue is informed by identity, connection, nostalgia, and isolation.
