Many things or even situations are often in a comparison process, where both, common points and differences arise between them. The expression "Apples and Oranges" initially refers to the apparent differences between two or more objects that make them totally incomparable. However, with a more careful reading, common elements can also be recognized and the comparison is finally possible. Considering all the above, I decided to use this idiom as a title for my project. I tried to put images in pairs that, while at first look seem dissimilar, when you look them closely, they can stand as a diptych. This happens when some common and formalistic mainly elements, make a powerful conversation between those images.
Everyday in the crowded cities, people of every age and every sex moves. In their gaze i often notice expressions that reflect some thoughts, anxieties and desires. Eyes that sometimes looking you meaningfully and you feel that they have something to tell you and sometimes they overtake you indifferently, lost within their own time-space. This is exactly what I tried to capture with my camera, trying to play an active role in this process, whose the only protagonist is the human gaze. (Photos and text by Makis Makris)
