The work of Alexis Papatzaneteas explores the function of photography as a record, in an archival sense, with its implication of neutrality; and by contrast, the felt sense, with its intimacy, continuity & the process of an unfolding narrative.
His recent work examines the function of the photograph as an archival document. This usage of the photograph explores the idea of an image preserved as a record, our notion of immortality.
Alexis is interested in the complexity of ideas, that an examination of these archival records produce. On a personal level they have the ability to evoke memory and depending on how they are contextualised, the work suggests a plethora of historical & cultural perspectives.
