In this street photography project, I have set out to document the oft-overlooked and fading relics that still dot the urban landscape of the city of Athens: the old greek yellow card phones. These humble phone booth stand as silent witnesses to the passage of time. Each weathered booth tells a unique story, evoking nostalgia for a bygone era when these payphones were the lifeline to the world beyond.
Amidst the modern-day smartphones that dominate communication, these yellow cardphones exude a vintage charm, reminding us of simpler times and the art of real, tangible connections. These photographs captures the faded paint, chipped edges, and graffiti-strewn booths, showcasing the raw beauty in decay - breathing life into these forgotten corners of the city, turning them into veritable works of art.
From the narrow alleys of Plaka to the vibrant squares of Monastiraki, each frame tells a visual tale, resonating with both locals and visitors alike. This photography project on yellow cardphones is a profound tribute to the heart and soul of Athens, encapsulating its essence through the lens of time.
