Heirloom

Michail Ioannidis

How alarming that during the last third of one’s expected lifetime, on-camera participation becomes less frequent as if there was nothing worth remembering from then onwards. 

 The symbiosis of his parents and their pandemic-affected daily routine inside their apartment in Athens allowed Michail Ioannidis to take a closer look at things that he took for granted and acknowledge them. Having lost a big part of his connection to his family throughout the last couple of years, these circumstances brought Michail closer to them. 
 HEIRLOOM cherishes the future-to-be relics of the past and grasps firmly onto what is inevitably going to become a hazy recollection.
