“Parontes”: The SNFCC hosts the major photojournalism exhibition by iMEdD - Εικόνα

From Saturday June 20 and up until the end of September, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) hosts a major photography exhibition, entitled “Parontes” (Present), by the journalism non profit organization iMEdD, at the perimeter of the Stavros Niarchos Park. The exhibition consists of 43 works of photojournalism captured by reporters and photojournalists, which show everyday life during the lockdown, as well as the return to “normality”.

Moments of people who showed up and were “present” every day over the past few months, and have so far travelled to public spaces in towns all over Greece, comprise a topical journalistic record of living history.

"Parontes" is a journalism project that includes, in addition to photojournalism, revealing videos and live texts, all telling the stories of people who, over the recent period, found themselves on the front line, fought valiantly against the pandemic, and are now trying to return to normality.

“Parontes” were captured by: Giannis Adamidis (journalist), Eirini Vourloumis (photojournalist), Sofia Exarchou (cinematographer), Giorgos Iliopoulos (cinematographer), Marianna Kakaounaki (journalist), Yannis Kolesidis (photojournalist), Kostas Koukoumakas (journalist), Giorgos Moutafis (photojournalist), Giannis Ntrenogiannis (journalist - cinematographer), Natasha Blatsiou (journalist), Marianna Oikonomou (cinematographer), Timos Papadopoulos (journalist), Myrto Papadopoulou (photojournalist), Dimitris Papaevangelou (programmer), Nikos Pilos (photojournalist), Nikos Pitsiladis (journalist), Sarah Souli (journalist), Katerina Sotirakou (journalist), Alexia Tsagkari (journalist - cinematographer), Phoebe Fronista (journalist - cinematographer), and Thodoris Hondrogiannos (journalist). The iMEdD Incubator team was responsible for coordinating the contributors and curating the exhibition material.
