Summary: The call of the Sirens

This series titled “Sirens” is a parable about the visual songs, promises and the illusions reflected from the intimidating images of beautiful of women and angry but beautiful men. Their portraits are surrounding us with their seducing bitter sweet appearance, while occupying the city’s walls and windows. I try to understand why these images we see around us every day have such a great hold on us in a powerful way by capture them.
