The colors of Greece
Photographic depiction of Greece per topics.
The Soul of Greece together with Thessaloniki Art and Culture organize photographies per topic for the year 2017, aiming to create selective albums of Greece by all Greeks and the visitors of our country as well. Our aim is to decode and present Greece by thematic units with issues ultimately representative for the country, like the Greek family, its tastes, the friendship, its colours, its doors and windows, the Greeks with their sense of humour and their good moments, portraits, which, definitely reflect the Greek soul.
The Colors of Greece
When we hear the word Greece, we are automatically inundated with pictures and colours. The colours of Greece are vivid, characteristically by region; for example, the islands are connected with the blue and the white, the colours of the Aegean Sea. The Ionian Sea is all about bluemarine, blue-green waters. Zagorochoria, rich vegetation, the blessed olive tree. Yellow-orange, unique sunsets in Greece, full of memories. Yellow, the sun of Greece, the hotness. The islands are white, the snowy mountains and the landscapes.
To record Greece per colour, to create its chromatic puzzle
We are setting off with the blue colour and all of its nuances. Though simultaneously, you can start gathering the colours WHITE, YELLOW, GREEN, RED, PINK and PURPLE along with their hues.
