The Pig and Other Stories

by Stratos Kalafatis

These images do not describe or attempt to narrate. I could describe them as ‘in-between images’. They were created in-between and at the same time with my other projects. Photographs between my forties and my fifties, between the two ‘riders’ Mohammad Ali and Alexander the Great, the Olympic Games and Eidomeni, the trauma of birth and the passing time that brings the fear of death. Parts of short stories with seemingly different destinations, they have been stripped of myth and plot. But what’s left of a story when the narrative is taken away? The tree, the bird, the crossroads, the wolf, the girl, the brave young lad, love, a blessing, a curse. Dots that lead from one to the next, a dot to dot game you hope it will reveal its secrets.
