      Our brief was to show the other reality to this beautiful city - the quite corners and beautiful moments you come across when strolling around. Shot on 5D we followed a bubble magician across town for a week waiting for the right moments - and the right bubbles. 3 bubbles in the film were added in after effects - can you guess which?!

          Police attacked for no reason a peaceful solidarity demo to hunger striker Kostas Sakkas undeneath the Acropolis amongst tourists on Wednesday July 10, 2013. Tourists enjoy your stay and live your police brutality in Greece! Free Kostas Sakkas. More info: Athens (10/72013): Solidarity actions in the tourist center of the city under brutal police attack. On Wednesday 10th, 2013 an impromptu demo took place, at Thisio, Athens in solidarity with Kostas Sakkas. Ιt was purposefully not announced and circulated mouth to mouth, so it had an element of surprise for police forces. The demo's puprpose was to hand out information material on Sakkas' case mainly to tourists. At the beginning of the demo there were 6-7 Delta Force policemen present, (a police force with motorcycles, well known for their brutality) and they were rather taken by the crowd (about 300 people). They started harassing a comrade, asking for his identity card etc, so we started walking towards them, shouting slogans and they had to let him go. Then they just disappeared for a while, when out of nowhere the surrounding streets flooded with Delta and Dias bikes (police forces). They obviously didn't anticipate such a crowd. Our aim was to go through the square at Plaka (a highly touristic site) and turn on Aeropagitou street but the police succeeded in cutting us off by forming a chain of policemen with batons and police bikers behind them. 10 minutes later we changed our course towards Thisio. Along the way to Thisio some of us started to write slogans with spray on walls and the police invaded the demo with their bikes, cutting us in three groups. The spot was rather quiet, with no tourists. That shows that police were just waiting to attack us. Three policemen isolated an elder comrade and started beating him on the head, with their batons and fists, showing no mercy. We managed to draw them into a narrow street and they started throwing stun/flash grenades and then all hell broke loose. The riot police (MAT) stormed at us, chasing us down every narrow street in the area trying to cut off any escape route. Most of us made it through. Others were contained in the archeological site of Thisio and after being badly beaten they were released. Through all this chaos, although the police officer in charge shouted at Delta policemen to stay calm, they were just blindly and ruthlessly beating anyone they could get their hands on, enjoying every moment of it. After turning a demo to a manhunt without any provocation, police took 10 comrades into custody and pressed trivial charges (resisting arrest) on 2 of them, leading to their arrest. There is info that at Acropolis metro station, there was a group of Golden Dawn members, proving once again the close relations of greek police and Golden Dawn. Sakkas is imprisoned against all constitutional and criminal laws by the greek state and the judicial system. But that is not enough for them. They are after anyone who tries to speak up, but we will not be silenced. Free Kostas Sakkas Solidarity to all political prisoners

                    The photos you have just reviewed are, in their original form, 3-D anaglyph images and come from the book "THE THIRD DIMENSION IN THE ATHENS OLYMPIC GAMES" by Marios Lefteriotis, which has not been published yet.

More at his page http://3dmarios.blogspot.com/ MEET MARIOS LEFTERIOTIS - ΣΥΝΑΝΤΗΣΗ ΜΕ ΤΟΝ ΜΑΡΙΟ ΛΕΥΤΕΡΙΩΤΗ at http://marlef.blogspot.com/ Οι ανέκδοτες φωτογραφίες των Ολυμπιακών Αγώνων της Αθήνας που είδατε, είναι τρισδιάστατες στη κανονική τους μορφή και είναι από το βιβλίο του Μάριου Λευτεριώτη "Η ΤΡΙΤΗ ΔΙΑΣΤΑΣΗ ΤΩΝ ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΩΝ ΑΓΩΝΩΝ ΤΗΣ ΑΘΗΝΑΣ" που δεν έχει εκδοθεί ακόμη. CopyRight των φωτογραφιών : Μάριος Λευθεριώτης. Περισότερες πληροφορίες στη σελίδα του http://3dmarios.blogspot.com/ MEET MARIOS LEFTERIOTIS - ΣΥΝΑΝΤΗΣΗ ΜΕ ΤΟΝ ΜΑΡΙΟ ΛΕΥΤΕΡΙΩΤΗ at http://marlef.blogspot.com/ Ο πρόλογος από το βιβλίο «Η ΤΡΙΤΗ ΔΙΑΣΤΑΣΗ ΤΩΝ ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΩΝ ΑΓΩΝΩΝ ΤΗΣ ΑΘΗΝΑΣ» του Μάριου Λευθεριώτη Η έννοια του βάθους στην εικόνα, η τρίτη διάσταση όπως λέγεται συνήθως, ασκούσε ανέκαθεν μία ιδιαίτερη έλξη σε μένα. Η δυνατότητα να μπορώ να εκτιμώ τις αποστάσεις των αντικειμένων, χρησιμοποιώντας και τα δύο μάτια, όπως στη πραγματικότητα, μου προσέφερε την ολοκλήρωση στην εικόνα, και τη βαθιά ικανοποίηση της ρεαλιστικής εμπειρίας. Πάντοτε πίστευα ότι η απεικόνιση σε δύο διαστάσεις, όπως συνήθως γίνεται, και η προσπάθεια να εκτιμηθεί το βάθος της εικόνας με τη βοήθεια μόνο της προοπτικής, ήταν ελλιπής και πάντοτε είχα την εντύπωση ότι κάτι χάνω, πολύ ουσιώδες, από την πραγματικότητα. Γι' αυτό και έχω απασχοληθεί και πειραματισθεί για μεγάλο χρονικό διάστημα με τη τρισδιάστατη φωτογραφία, και έχω κατασκευάσει ένα σύστημα δύο μηχανών λήψεως σε ενιαία βάση, που λειτουργούν ταυτόχρονα και δίνουν την εικόνα που λαμβάνει το αριστερό και το δεξί μάτι του παρατηρητή αντίστοιχα. Έτσι ο συνδυασμός των δύο φωτογραφιών αυτών δίνει αποτέλεσμα όμοιο με αυτό που προκύπτει στον εγκέφαλό μας από τη σύνθεση των εικόνων των δύο ματιών μας. Όταν λοιπόν βρέθηκα μπροστά στην κοσμογονία που συντελέστηκε στην Αθήνα με την ευκαιρία των Ολυμπιακών αγώνων, η αυθόρμητη αντίδρασή μου, ήταν να αποτυπώσω «ανάγλυφα» τα δρώμενα που συνέβαιναν γύρω μου, μεταφορικά, αλλά και ουσιαστικά, μέσα από την τρισδιάστατη φωτογραφία Μάριος Λευθεριώτης Ο Μάριος Λευτεριώτης έχει ετοιμάσει ένα βιβλίο με τίτλο «Η ΤΡΙΤΗ ΔΙΑΣΤΑΣΗ ΤΩΝ ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΩΝ ΑΓΩΝΩΝ ΤΗΣ ΑΘΗΝΑΣ», που περιέχει 230 έγχρωμες τρισδιάστατες φωτογραφίες από τους Ολυμπιακούς και τώρα αναζητά εκδότη κατάλληλο για την εκτύπωση των φωτογραφιών αυτών και την έκδοση του βιβλίου. http://3dmarios.blogspot.com/ http://marlef.blogspot.com/
