industrial era remnants in the sea
Industrial remnants at Lavrio
between two majestic eternities
A short biography
I was born in Kavala (Greece) in 1966. I studied Business administration and Business informatics at Macedonia University of Thessaloniki. At the same years I studied Photography at Y.M.C.A. school. I have attended several workshops about digital photography, editing and post production proccessing.
I have also Msc in Marketing with new technologies.
I work as a web developer and e-business consultant. Photography is my escape into the world of untold and experiential. In life we go mainly from the Fortune options. Few are the decisions arising from the pure and free will significantly determine our course in time travel. At random then respond consciously or unconsciously with a yes or a no. Usually we say "NO" since this does not make us from the pressure relief safety habit. The "yes" Is that changing the course of life. My "YES" are my pictures.
My interests in photography are focused in a timeless approach. Seascapes or landscapes that represent the space as timeless, without a significant of time passage. As time is the core backround of our existence the substraction of it reveals the life remnants. This approach is depicted either as a dreamy atmosphere or a painting from the past.

Blank Wall Gallery: Black & White
2 Yakinthou Street 11364 - Athens - Greece
17 November 2015 - 03 December 2015
Black and white photography has been loved and faithfully served by many photographers around the world. There have been artists who exclusively take black and white photographs and stubbornly deny to shoot in color. They believe that the magic of a picture is better depicted in black and white, supporting the idea that the absence of color many times provokes imagination to create its own magnificent pictures.

Blank Wall: Dreamlike Landscapes
12 Yakinthou Street 11364 - Athens - Greece
06 February 2016 - 19 February 2016
Photographs that create a dreamlike feeling. Time is there and gives a very vivid effect on the final result, These images present a distorted reality. They speak to each viewer separately and by inviting them to empty their minds from every thought, they create a variety of emotions and reactions, a different reality for each and everyone. Seemingly ordinary and everyday scenes are transformed into something different.

Black Duck Multiplarte: Timescapes
Christou Lada 9A, Athens 105 61, Greece
04 October 2016 - 11 October 2016
There is a logical deadlock to manage something as incomprehensible as “time” in its own terms, such as “before", "never" or "after". This inescapable childhood naivety is what we are obliged to live with until the "end".
My relationship with “time” has never been harmonious. Since I remember myself, the impossibility of understanding time, lead me to images and transferences: Sometimes as an arrow that pierces an undefined void, or as fluid in the virtual bank of a warped river, or as a ripple on water… In most representations in my imagination time has a natural flow and water is therefore the most appropriate virtual entity. The sea with its vast space is a good supporter of this flow. The clouds as well. Both of these elements, through their motion, but mainly because of their magnitude, encompass the impression of the “ambiguity of limits", and are the most appropriate background imagery. Time as a dynamic uncertainty of an unknown source, flows to an undetermined destination and my main anxiety is my inability to recognize the purpose of this movement. This weakness of understanding the reason, I endeavor to demonstrate, yet not to prove. My fears which emerge from the above weakness, momentarily at least, are softened by preventing and freezing the flow. Photography seemed to be the perfect medium for this artificial immobility. The photographs presented in this exhibition present the freezing of the flowing fluid or flowing time. In many photographs this flow occurs in parallel with an element of the past which is usually neglected or abandoned. The landscapes presented with a dominant element of the sea and clouds capture the dynamics of the flow or as a snapshot or as a dreamy field where abandonment is depicted. Ships and fishing boats, abandoned in ship cemeteries,.. ship wrecks as a remembrance of a glorious past, debris from constructions afloat in the sea or washed out on rocky shores, where time disguised as the sea has carved. These are the key elements of this exhibition.

2017-18 Winners Art Category - First Prize
Besides the technical aspect with superb editing and a contrasty black and white look, this photograph is very well composed. At a glance, it immediately reminded me of a painting. The waves in the foreground connect beautifully with the clouds. An outstanding photograph has to possess excellence in three aspects: Light, composition, and the moment – this photo for sure has them all.
