"Seeking Tides"

A group of fishermen seek to capture a fish on the pristine beach of Pointe de Sable in Port-Salut, Haiti.  As it's their only source of income, every fish is vital to their survival.

This photograph shows a family of Gypsies in the "ghost city" of Metaxourgeion, an area very near to Athens center that through the years has become a place for immigrants, prostitutes, and drug addicts. People struggle everyday to live with the difficulties that such an area presents. This piece was part of a simultaneous, collaborative production of an interactive documentary that consisted of all types of creative expression – photography, writing, audio, video, social media, and was the first collaboration between the New School.Athens, the International Center of Photography in New York, and the Creative Process of Florianopolis, Brazil. 

About the artist: Stelios Choustoulakis currently lives in Athens, and will turn thirty this March. In February of 2013 he completed the course in Photography at the NewSchool.Athens. The Greek financial crisis has found him making a living as a dishwasher.
