Here We Are is an anthology of Panos Kokkinias’ widely exhibited fine-art photography, from 1994 through 2007. The monograph consists of four sections, each representing different bodies of work linked by a common theme: Kokkinias’ personal, ongoing obsession with existential subject matter.

Home (1994-1995), was produced during a difficult personal period for Kokkinias, marked by an eating disorder. To help overcome his troubles, Kokkinias turned the camera onto himself. Gradually his physical presence in the pictures gave way to surrogates for his psychological state.

Interiors (1995-1996), contains depictions of uncommon and unfamiliar interior spaces with the apparition of haunting human figures. Seen from a distance, the subjects are trapped, wandering, and lost, without an apparent escape.

• In Landscapes (1996-2001), beneath an omnipresent lens, distant figures roam the countryside with urban neuroses in tow, underscoring their remove from nature and the world around them.

Here We Are (2001-2007), the closing section of the book, examines photography’s capacity to consider the existential condition.
