In his series Olympia, Jonas Zilius photographically exposes the complexity of a tiny section of the present: with an eye trained by Bruno Latour, he observes archaeologists in the remodeling of the south hall in the ancient complex of Olympia. He shows the actors and their technical instruments through a unique style of imagery; the Mediterranean landscape and the tourist spectacle; the ancient artifacts and digital visualization forms used for archaeological work. The montage of the different planes of reality leads to new forms of reporting through photography - a photography that is equal to the complexity of the present.
