Winner of the 2018 HSBC Prize for Photography, Petros Efstathiadis (b. 1980) offers strange stagings rooted in the land of his native village, Liparo, in Balkan Greece. Portraits of his relatives, humble peasants that he transforms into Homeric knights. And surrealist sculptures, cobbled together from objects gleaned from nearby backyards. So many fictitious and fanciful forms, whose poetry metaphorizes - and criticizes - the current crises.
