The soundscape of a LOCKDOWN in 2:30 minutes

During the lockdown in Thessaloniki, I made some field recordings mostly from the balcony of my apartment, but also from other places at my neighborhood like the park, the streets and the seafront of Thessaloniki. Among the sounds that I recorded, were also the celebrations during the evening of Resurrection at Easter and the  day of the Orthodox Easter which all took place at he balconies of the flats. As I live by a very noisy and busy avenue, I recorded this huge change of the soundscape, as the sounds of cars and horns gradually were replaced by the songs …

Being creative during lockdown

It’s been almost a month since Greece has been in the state of lockdown due to the pandemic of COVID-19. This new situation was a big shock to me and I am really worried about everyone losing his job or having to work at this so hard situation and of course about the victims which grow all over the world. As I stay at home with my son, I try to see the bright side of the lockdown simply by being creative. I suddenly found time to observe things more clearly and to work on my photographic plans which I could …

Taking part in “Foinikas: A stroll in the city”

During the spring of 2019, three photographers (Yiannis Ioakeimidis, Aleka Tsironi, Michele Troiani) and I, were invited by Hercules Papaioannou to photograph the neighborhood of Foinikas in Thessaloniki. At the end, these photographs were edited by Mr. Papaioannou and the book “Foinikas: A stroll in the city” was published. Every year 4 photographers are called to have a “stroll in the city”at a particular place and make its photographic “portrait”, so that gradually the city of Thessaloniki gets documented by contemporary photographers. I really enjoyed taking part at this 8th issue, where I had the chance to explore this neighborhood and  …

Workshop on photobooks with Moritz Neumüller

Last week I found my self in Athens at Onassis Foundation (Στέγη Γραμμάτων και Τεχνών), where I followed the workshop of Moritz Neumüller about photobooks, (self-)publishing and visual narratives. People who also followed the workshop were photographers who were working on their projects, so we saw each other’s work and we had very interesting discussions and commenting about them. We also had a look at many photobooks that were published this year and took a lot inspiration by looking through them. Moritz was very friendly and helpful and we had interesting conversations about the art world today, the boom of the photobook, …

TALK AT THE PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB OF KAVALA AND KOMOTINI
