Greek Elections

Greece hit the polls today to chose from the usual ping-pong of New Democracy or PASOK. Ta Nea on-line used this photo as its headline "elections proceed without problems." The image is conceptually rich, like a Max Ernst surrealist bird-machine. The booths hang from the wall like wet coats, the curtain's blue wings take flight. The complimentary yellow bags under the curtain's skirt are urinary if not medical. The precarious metal frame is rooted by the black electrical wire. We enter through the right corner over a wash basin. The well dressed couple (high heels especially) sexualize the isolated relationship, even though we know they're just dressed in their Sunday best.
