In “Pregnant Pauses” photograph collection, Vassilis Konstantinou captures moments of family and everyday routine, balancing between reality and fantasy. The stage heroes, members of his family and himself, sometimes give the impression of professional actors playing their part and sometimes they appear to portray themselves.
These Pauses imply an ambiguous “before” and an uncertain “after”. In a subtle manner, they attempt to perhaps illustrate the calm before the storm. Photographs standing still in blue, images encouraging the viewer to set them in motion, either in the future or in the past, ultimately revealing or hiding their secrets.
