About the exhibition

Mary Christofides does not illustrate messages or tell stories. She simply draws attention to small coincidences in the context of her everyday life, resulting from the encounter between insignificant events chosen by her senses and the importance attributed to them by her memory through her photographic frame. Thus, she uses small selected fragments to build her personal timeline. Her success is due, inter alia, to the priority and preservation of the photographic process. Thus, the photographic result preserves its polysemy and its power to abstract, and the photographic process the mystery that provokes it.
