First and Last by Spyros Papaspyrou
The series titled “First and Last” is an observation and documentation of the First Cemetery of Athens, the oldest cemetery there and the way people interact within it. The interaction between people and the cemetery is deep, emotional and many times too conspicuous. For so many of them is their “last home” but it’s ironic that it can be so full of life at the same time. People come and go, life comes and goes, but the cemetery is the only constant in this. And it is so because it represents death. But at the same time, there is no death without life.
Spyros Papaspyrou is an amateur photographer from Athens, Greece. “First and Last” is an ongoing project that he has been working almost for a year now with his Yashica 24 medium format camera.
