‘The Last Resort’ is an exhibition of photographs taken in Greece over 2016 and 2017 reflecting on the polarity in human experience in a country which is simultaneously a global tourism hotspot and a nexus of the European refugee crisis. These experiences are antonymous, one embodying ultimate suffering, the other ultimate privilege, and they now intersect in Greece, at times side by side. The Last Resort seeks to unveil the arbitrary privilege of some, juxtaposed with the unconscionable repression of others.
‘The Last Resort’ is open now at Comber Street Studios, 5 Comber street, Paddington. (Sydney, Australia).
