Projects are (for me) a complete concept-wise series of photoshoots, intend to convey a message or a meaning.
7 Deadly Sins
I have created this series with the model Ailiroy . The "7 Deadly Sins" series is inspired by the theological Seven Deadly Sins.
It concerns our functionality in modern society as Human Products that have to "sell themselves" to others as good as possible in order to survive, as well as the obsession with plastic/flawless beauty that turns people into more attractive and thus more easily "sold".
This was my very first series, shot between 2011 and 2015, but only finally edited around 2020. It started off as a 'Silent Hill' tribute, but quickly grew into its own collection of dysfunctional videogame-like beings. Their common thread is that they are all demented in some way and all obsess over one thing (one could say it's their 'totem').
Knowing, from my many years of experience as one of the few cosplay photographers in Greece, that cosplayers are indeed "everyday people" with jobs, studies, worries, just like anyone else really, and that they are not "no-gooders who idle around making fancy costumes" (as often told) I decided on making this project happen.
Small Planets & Crystal Balls
This photographic project consists of "small planets" and "crystal balls", of both everyday and exotic places. Both can be produced from 360 degrees panoramas. Its purpose is to enable the viewer to travel to new worlds, but also to gain a new perspective of the places around him/her.
