Old Town Street (towards Photo Net) depicts the expressive painting of a female nude displayed in a framer’s shop window and is layered with the reflection of Nicosia’s old town. Resembling the processing and the becoming of an image, the analog photograph was shot at a close distance to Photo Net, Toumazou’s local photography store, where her pictures are developed and printed. The photograph is part of a series of 26 pictures resulting from numerous walks through Toumazou’s hometown. The series appeared for the first time in R, C, the publication that accompanied RHYTHM, CITIZEN, Toumazou’s solo exhibition at Grazer Kunstverein in 2022. One of them is now available as an exclusive artist’s edition. 

*The editions are available to the members of Grazer Kunstverein. It is possible to become a member when purchasing an edition.
