In postmodernist fashion, behind the eye of the lens in this parallel world is none other than Alex Machairas from legendary 80s Greek band In Trance 95, starring as the photographer, who posing a directing the current heroes of the Athenian wave scene per his instruction.
“Addiction is an “unhealthy” bond between a person and something else. Whether you’re drawn to a substance, object, person, idea or feeling, addiction works the same way. Only the consequences change. It’s not to be said if it’s a bad or a good thing, it’s destructive as much as creative. We all capture glances of reality, some people use cameras and others don’t. Addiction is a mental state, something inside all of us. It altered our perception and created a parallel world of avant-garde beings and flashy lights making us part of this everlasting bond.”
