Fotios-Kyriakos Variatzas

This body of work examines interrelated murders that were committed during the 1960’s in Boston. The aim of this project is to bring back to the spotlight one of the biggest failures of the justice system – failure to convict and protect the people who were affected by the actions of Boston Strangler(s). This row of diptychs does not only represent the story of the women who got murdered, but it also tries to show that everyone, including the man who was convicted for thirteen murders, was affected by the incompetent justice system of the time. It could be said that this work functions as a historical paradigm. By turning the narrative into images through the merging of factual elements and the missing parts of the story, I would like to encourage the viewer to reconsider the limitations of the justice system.
