Sobre mi

I was born in December 1943 in Thessaloniki Greece. I'm interested in History, Art, Archaeology theater and cinema in which I like to refer in my photos. My themes are mainly landscapes, ecology and nature, thus I love "static" photography using tripod, hand photometer and quite often medium format. In the last years I'm tending more to the digital field and I beleive that "raw quality" is perhaps the greatest benefit that digital field offered to the photographer because through that the image emerges as an untouched fruit waiting peel off to reveal its juice. I prefer handling natural light tending to the so called "pictorial" photography because to my opinion- as much controversial this may sound- in a such you can better approach the reality of subjects. A reality that may not always be tangible or as much obvious as everybody thinks it is through the lens. Also, on certain occasions, tending to an expressionistic approach, I like to add dimension and even enhance the impact of this reality by highlighting certain points that may pass unobserved but, in the same time, do not belong to the imagination.
Documentary and journalism photography refering to social problems and everyday life is also very much to my liking.
My favourite equipment are the D700 and D800 from the NIKON family with a collection of dedicated NIKON, SIGMA, and TAMRON lenses and from medium format a 645D Autofocus MAMIYA( PHASE ONE) with a LEAF APTUS D22 digital back.
I must admit, that I am a rather old fashioned darkroom obsessionist stuck to some past principles that gradually are becoming benevolent ghosts in happy dreams only. For me Ansel Adams for his technical skill and Robert Capa for his boldness will remain unsurpassed leaders in photography.
It's not always easy to have the luxury of good teachers so, i beleive,it is much better to learn from each other and there is always time and field for that..
I thank you all for offering this chance to me and forgive me if I don't always find the time to communicate more closely with you.

    Hello Alex,
    indeed, there is an old connection to the island of Naxos, however no exact details known, parents and grandparents come from Piraeus. The result of that little Odyssey is that we live all our life in Western Europe, mainly in Frankfurt.....
    Your photos are magnificent, I recognize a phylosophical-professional approach, you are very experienced.
    One photograph I admire is Vivian Meier, the Unknown Giant, considering street photography and city life. Additionally, I am more interested in Arts and Ecology.
