"Employing themes of classical and documentary travel photography, Baiker constructs new semiotic connections between historical and contemporary imagery. Cornerstones of Greek culture and history - politics, seafaring, architecture, sculpture and the theatre - become the parameters delineating the imagery of this project. The title, Pan's Cave, is both example and representation of this kind of interplay between myths and reality. Using photography in a precisely calculated, temporally and locally selective way, Baiker creates new contexts and insights." (Mirko Mayer Gallery website)
