On 28 July 2021, Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. “Demokritos” organised and implemented the online photography exhibition entitled “The Ballad of Senses and Illusions”, from the same name song, written by Manos Hatzidakis, in 1970, for the film The Martlet’s Tale.
During the exhibition we played some background music with songs of Manos Hatzidakis, one of the greatest greek composers, who, in 1960, received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for his song “Never on Sunday” from the film of the same name.
The exhibition included photographs from a photography courses and exhibition space in Athens, Blackbox. Some of the work of the photographer who conducted the Photography Workshop on 13 July 2021 was also exhibited.
After the exhibition we had the opportunity to demonstrate some of the Mygrant METAMORPHOSIS digital library material to the 20 participants regarding mostly the Photography Workshop.
The participants found the exhibition very relaxing and informative, even though it was held online and showed a keen interest in learning more about photography.
