The Athens International Airport and the Hellenic Ornithological Society welcome the public to a new photography exhibition of environmental and artistic awareness entitled “Birds and aircraft in parallel flights.”
Through 30 snapshots of birds and aircraft captured by Greek and foreign photographers, accompanied by printed and audiovisual material, visitors will have the opportunity to come closer to the world of birds of Greek nature, focusing on their similarities in shape and motion with different types of modern aircraft.
Furthermore, the morphological comparison of birds with corresponding aircraft types, promotes as common ground the “journey” to destinations across borders and distances. Through the same allegory, this exhibition reminds us of the importance of protecting birds and their natural habitats, as well as the actions to be carried out to ensure a sustainable environment, both for birds and for humans.
The exhibition “Birds and aircraft in parallel flights” is open all day to the public from Friday 6 September until the end of the year, on display at the airport’s “Art & Environment” area (Departures, Entrance 3).
