Polixeni Papapetrou: Games of Consequence

Polixeni Papapetrou: Games of Consequence at Foley Gallery in New York. "...With the variant, looming contours of rural Australia to serve as scenery, photographer Polixeni Papapetrou sets her adolescent models into a potent series of reminiscent yet equivocal scenes of childhood play. Her prowess in and predilection for polished composition yields Papapetrou the crisp, cinematic stills of 'Games of Consequence.' It is intently, the flawless articulation of these exacted elements: the leer of a black river, the pair of cardinal-red stockings, and coiled skipping rope in Papapetrou’s photographs that beguile us into enchanted memories of a near forgotten past." More Works by Polixeni Papapetrou at her personal site.
