“Wavecrusher” is a wrong translation from greek for the word breakwater. “Wavecrusher” was an area I used to visit. Some times I still do.
It was a landscape consisted of construction material for breakwaters. It was around a port at southern suburbs of Athens, where I grew up. During the 90s there already was a breakwater there but the plan was to expand it and eventually make it a semi private port area with bars and restaurants. Other parts of the area was mostly used for the Olympic constructions for 2004.
I recall that between 1996 and 2001 there were huge piles of scrap metal, rusted platforms and a forest of big masses of crosslike shaped concrete. I used to live nearby and I was visiting this site often then but left it, some time later, to live somewhere else. By 2013, when I returned for a brief period to live there, this sight has been mostly gone. Now the place I call “wavecrusher” is reduced to a very small place. These photos were taken in may 1999. It was the first film I had used. — Andreas Ragnar Kassapis
