The Cyprus High Commission in the UK invites you to a private viewing of the photography exhibition “Ύδωρ – Hudor” by Cypriot photographer Marina Antoniou.
Marina Antoniou captures water (‘ydor’) in different forms. She photographs icebergs in Antarctica and Greenland, lakes in Galapagos, the crystal waters of the Mediterranean sea in Venice, Greece and Cyprus and lava beaches in Iceland. She presents aerial photos of the Amazon rainforest and snowstorm in the Alps. She photographs water as the natural habitat of whales, penguins and of an undiscovered sea life that human action is putting at risk. Through her exhibition, Marina invites us to re-evaluate our presence in the world and reflect on the urgent need to protect the primary and most essential source of life: Ydor.
Duration of exhibition: 11 November – 11 December | Mon-Fri 10:00-16:00 (book a visit via firstname.lastname@example.org)
