This thesis examines landscape in the course of an itinerancy and positions the road as its constant figurative as well as allegorical component.
The examination is applied on a cohesive body of original photographic work selected from two published monographs and it is juxtaposed with comparable photographs from other practitioners on the field.
My methodological approach in the production of the photographs combines technical and morphological elements from the genres of subjective documentary and landscape photography.
This synthesis entails a variety of conceptual choices, embodied practices and operational devices as well as the deployment of different formats and techniques. Similarly, the commentary on the photographs relates both the indexical guarantee and the photographs' symbolic significations.
Seen in the light of the Greek landscape tradition that runs from the picturesque and the mythological to the constructed and the staged, this thesis associates the representation of landscape with the experience of travel and argues for its contingent nature.
