Petros Koublis is a Greek photographer with a particular interest in the mythical world.
Presented body of work titled In Dreams is an attempt to challenge the authority of the mind over our reality. Influenced by Greek mythology and driven by his emotions, Petros created a series of stunning landscapes that resemble otherworldly terrains. He photographs what attracts his feelings, rather than just his attention. "There are limits to our perception. Therefore we are not able to fully perceive what is essentially mind-independent, free of form, shape, and definition. We are bound to keep addressing a mental version of reality, limited within the confines of our understanding. Through Mythology the human spirit could philosophically approach those remote areas of a system much bigger than what we are able to perceive.
As if through Myths, our spirit is able to overcome the boundaries of the mind and expose our intuition to a much greater reality, letting us lift the veil for a moment and feel what lies underneath. These primordial narratives are not attempting an interpretation of the unknown, but they offer an accumulation of the human experience, they talk about the history of the Psyche or, as Freud described it, the distorted vestiges of the wish-fantasies of whole nations, the age-long dreams of young humanity. Then, in the form of a lucid dream, they reveal the archetypes that connect us with the most distant areas of our spirit, where the seeds of our evolution were first planted into the fertile soil of imagination,” shared his thoughts and knowledge Petros.
