Abstract

HERE WE ARE is an anthology of Panos Kokkinias’ widely
exhibited fine-art photography, from 1994 through 2007. The
monograph consists of four sections, each representing different
bodies of work linked by a common theme: Kokkinias’
personal, ongoing obsession with existential subject matter.
Home (1994–1995), was produced during a difficult personal
period for Kokkinias, marked by an eating disorder. To help
overcome his troubles, Kokkinias turned the camera onto
himself. Gradually his physical presence in the pictures gave
way to surrogates for his psychological state.
Interiors (1995–1996), contains depictions of uncommon and
unfamiliar interior spaces with the apparition of haunting
human figures. Seen from a distance, the subjects are
trapped, wandering, and lost, without an apparent escape.
In Landscapes (1996–2001), beneath an omnipresent lens,
distant figures roam the countryside with urban neuroses
in tow, underscoring their remove from nature and the world
around them.
Here We Are (2001–2007), the closing section of the book,
examines photography’s capacity to consider the existential
condition.
