Retro summer scenes: Are problem-free summers behind us?

A greek visual designer re-visits and interrogates iconic summer days from the 50s & 60s.

Summer is the brightness of the sky complemented by colourful swimwear and days filled with laughter, joy. But can we afford to enjoy these days the way we did in the past? Endless Summer is a self-initiated project by well renowned visual designer Charis Tsevis. His cutout collages are an ode to carefree days under the Sun.

Tsevis’ project is inspired by the summer days of the 50s and the 60s, days that he believes signify enjoyment and fewer problems. Tsevis also questions these assumptions by linking them to the now by posing questions like “Was the world really better back then? Or we just tend to forget the problems of the past?”

This series of nostalgic summery scenes is created from parts of vintage ads.
