Memory is created in places and goes on to live within them in various ways.
Social anthropologist Paul Connerton notes that the basic human pursuit is the preservation of memory. Photographic documentation is perhaps the best way to achieve this.
For decades, the airport of Hellenikon in Athens, it was the bridge between Greece and the rest of the world, until its closure in 2001. In the coming years, it is poised to change dramatically. This final photographic documentation of the airport is another visual testimony aiming to facilitate the return of the collective memory to this place.
