Niki Gleoudi – Shades Blue

Niki Gleoudi

Shades Blue

How would we describe our life today? In a world that moves rapidly, in a world that constantly changes, in a city like New York where time imposes fast response and gallops breathlessly, can people be alone? Do they have time to feel alone?

In this photoessay I am portraying mainly the loneliness, the impossible actual communication even when people are in physical proximity. I am trying to capture the fragmental substance and present contact through an intermediate reality which is “mirrored” as a reflection in the glass. Perhaps the only truth is the one happening online, illuminating with a blue light the everyday routine. Subtracting the city’s surroundings, the noise, the traffic, the commotion and sometimes even the ambience around the subjects photographed, the moment that these people are and feel alone is evident. The only time where there is contact between two people is a blurred kiss. Finally, communication is accomplished by a couple. They are not alone. They become one and the energy interflows from one to another.
