ANTONIO DA SILVA’S “LIMANAKIA”
LIMANAKIA is a wild rocky area located on Leoforos Poseidonos South of Athens. At those three distinct steep coves, gay Greeks and tourists of all ages and body types find escape away from the commercial beaches of Attiki. It is considered one of the most beautiful place to swim and not only…
Antonio takes this opportunity to create a fantasy world. LIMANAKIA is a surrealistic, sexual, romantic, visual collage transporting us back to stories about Greek homoerotic orgies. Male tanned bodies are freely exposed on the white sharp rocks. Standing like ancient sculptures under the heat of the sun, men come together tasting each others salty skin. The camera follows them into the sea capturing their playfulness surrounded by the magic of the Mediterranean waters.
