Kourd Gallery participates for the 8th consecutive year in MIA Photo Fair, a very popular photography Art Fair taking place in Milan. Each year there are more than 25,000 people visiting to admire more than 60 galleries and 200 artists who participate in the fair. It is a very profitable event where "85% of last year's exhibitors, including galleries and independent artists in the section MIA Proposal, achieved sales". This year Kourd Gallery represents Greece with two professional photographers, Constantinos and Petros Sofikitis. Their photographic works complement each other other. They are two brothers with different points of view which create a common photography exhibition. Petros (‘Hinterland’ project) observes mankind as a whole while depicting their inner beauty. Time, as we know it, doesn’t exist. Movement, pain, disappointment and labour have a surrealistic duration. His approach aims to point out that man’s feelings are sometimes nonexistent. Au contraire, Constantinos’s (‘Morocco’ project) sensitivity touches the human soul and feelings and reveals his true nature. His camera is there to capture movement, time and contrasts and thus he brings people’s faces into the light. He allows the viewer to enter the landscape through the figures who give it colour and life, rather than its morphology.
