Public opinion usually treats the photographic image as the static recording of situations, as opposed to the moving cinematographic image, which is considered to be the sole medium that has the ability to narrate. The truth is, each photograph reveals traces of narration from within, as many as are needed in order to interpret the choice and merging of the elements of which it is composed. However, from its very first steps, the photograph could also satisfy the broader definition of narration which, according to Emmanuel Kriaras, is the narration of an event with a somewhat extensive report. A great number of techniques served and continue to serve the desire of photographers to narrate, whether it concerns the description of an actual event or pure invention. Every form of photographic narration, from the linear depiction of images to stage directing, is the theme of Photosynkyria 2004 titled INVENTIONS AND ACCOUNTS, the artistic manager of which is John Stathatos. The two large group exhibitions and the solo exhibitions include works of classic Greek and foreign photographers, renowned personages in the field of contemporary art, as well as talented upcoming creators.
