Sakis Dazanis is a high school teacher and contemporary photographer living and working in Kozani, a small town in Northern Greece.

The series Bad Egg is drawn from childhood memories driving through the Greek countryside, being told to quickly close the car windows as they approached the fertilizer factory on the outskirts of Ptolemaida, the rotten egg smell of Hydrogen Sulphide filling the car. The series sees Sakis revisit the factories, long since abandoned to nature, the decay as obvious to his eyes as the smell was to his nose as a child.

“With the dust and wild plant vegetation together, it was as if they had absorbed all the bad smell and transformed it into inspirational images evoking a strong feeling of appropriation and tranquility.”

Enjoy…
