Before realizing Dede's geographical origin, her images had spoken to us, suggesting the title and conceptual apparatus they needed. We have seen the fulfillment of Anaximander's Ápeiron, of the indefinite infinity of a pre-mythical time, where everything is primordial matter and fluidity. A true expression of the origins.

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
Dimitra Dede (born in Greece) is a London based visual artist working mainly with photography. She studied photography and holds a postgraduate diploma in New Media. Her practice combines painting and the use of chemicals with photography. The making of the imagery is based on an intuitive process. Her subject matter quests the connection between space and time, memory and displacement, loss and longing, life and the Absurd. Her work has been presented in galleries and festivals both in Europe and in America (Center for Fine Art Photography - Fort Collins, Black Box Gallery-Portland, Brighton Photo Biennial, Les Rencontres d'Arles, Unseen Festival Amsterdam etc.). ‘Mayflies' (VOID) is Dimitra’s first book. It was shortlised at the Unseen Dummy Award 2018 (Unseen Festival, Amsterdam).
