Yiannis Hadjiaslanis is a photographer based in Athens, Greece. He is particularly interested in landscape and architecture photography, documenting the perpetuations of memory.
Presented here is a project titled In Addis. It is a series of images taken in Addis Ababa, the capital and largest city of Ethiopia.
Yiannis focused his lens on locations, that have particular historical significance — institutions, seats of organization and social foundation which refer to former Ethiopia’s emperor Haile Selassie and his legacy to the present through perpetuity. “Spaces in which questions between and about tradition and modernization, educational reforms, state and church relations, UN presence, and Pan-African solidarity keep on reverberating,” shared the photographer.
