dichotomy 
self portrait
photographer: Nicki Upstairs

I have been working on completing the “foundation” series, that I started almost two years ago. It feels important to me to close this chapter and move on to different things. There is one more picture that I want to make and then the series will be complete. Read more on my blog: nickiupstairs.com/dichotomy

hamadryad 

self portrait
photographer: Nicki Upstairs

A hamadryad (/hæməˈdraɪ.æd/; Greek: Ἁμαδρυάδες, Hamadryádes) is a Greek mythological being that lives in trees. They are a particular type of dryad, which are a particular type of nymph. Hamadryads are born bonded to a certain tree. Some believe that hamadryads are the actual tree, while normal dryads are simply the entities, or spirits, of the trees. If the tree died, the hamadryad associated with it died as well. For that reason, dryads and the gods punished any mortals who harmed trees.

Οι αμαδρυάδες είναι μυθολογικά πλάσματα που ζουν στα δέντρα. Πρόκειται για συγκεκριμένο είδος δρυάδων, ένα είδος νυμφών. Κάθε αμαδρυάς είναι συνδεδεμένη με ένα συγκεκριμένο δέντρο. Κάποιοι πιστεύουν ότι οι αμαδρυάδες είναι το ίδιο το δέντρο, ενώ οι δρυάδες είναι απλώς οι οντότητες, τα πνεύματα των δέντρων. Εάν πέθαινε το δέντρο, πέθαινε και η αμαδρυάς που ήταν δεμένη μαζί του. Γι' αυτό, οι δρυάδες και οι θεοί τιμωρούσαν τους θνητούς που έκαναν κακό στα δέντρα.
