CM: Chryssa Nikoleris appreciates the aesthetics of Polaroid, which she calls "timelessness" and translates into color and nostalgia. With a disposal to experiment, Nikoleri photographed her Diaries with Polaroid film, then scan ned the images and printed them on photographic paper. The Diaries deal with the issue of memory and nostalgia. As archive, they depict private moments from the past of the photographer - excerpts from her everyday life in different parts of the world. Nikoleris has noticed that viewers feel that her works appear strangely familiar to them. As Nikoleri's subjects are common, they are reminiscent of something from the lives of the viewers, but in actual fact they are genuine and unique images.
Diary 26 presents an aspect of the cemetery in Cuzco, Peru. The blinding light crushes geometric forms and their colors. The composition acquires a one-dimensional flatness with continuous chromatatic flow without variation. The picture seems to have several readings, which express something metaphysical and posthumous, which exists independently of the place and time.
