ETHOS :: ISLAND OF CRETE

1 of 4

The dominant concern when making pictures is to perceive what resonates with the photographer’s inner self and be able to communicate his sensitivity and his reaction to each scene that unfolds before him. The work focuses on interactions between people, whose individuality and spontaneity separate them from one another. However, although separated, there are aspects of lifestyle that keep humans together.

ETHOS :: KOTSAMANIA, TETRALOFOS, KOZANI

Kotsamania is an ancient tradition of the Black Sea. The performance refers to the priests of Momos, the god of laughter and satire.

Photography, just as any other form of art, becomes meaningful when it can propose a different approach to life and slightly shift the course of humanity for the better.

Greece is home to an abundance of local events that are bound to traditions and customs. Across the four corners of the country, a great variety of events take place, related either to different times in history or geographic origins. These events and the tradition around them are the focus of the presented work.

ETHOS :: PAGAN CUSTOMS OF NORTHERN GREECE DURING CHRISTMAS

1 of 8

The journey’s outcome shows that no matter how the different customs and traditions may seem at the beginning, they share many similarities, even when a Dionysian custom is compared to a Christian one. This is because people have always been people, with similar sensitivities and needs. This work attempts to depict the ability of people to come close through their differences, thus presenting a more complex but interesting approach which may help avoid the danger of monotony in our modern lives.
