I was looking through some photos when I came across this one taken at a recent exhibition at the museum of Photography here in Thessaloniki called "Currents".
"At the Thessaloniki Museum of Photography, Warehouse A’, 1st floor, Port of Thessaloniki.
The Greeks wondered: the rivers never stop flowing in the sea. And yet, the level of the sea never rises. The Greeks reflect and cannot find any other enlightening explanation for this mystery, just one unavoidable reasoning: it is the sea which creates the rivers. This is where their sources are! And it is the internal fire of the Earth, which through distillation will alleviate the salt from the salt water. In this manner the sea receives what it gives."
