Favourite street photos from UPSP

Untitled by Andreas Katsakos

This wonderful photo from Andreas Katsakos makes me tears down. It triggers me to remember my passed away mother and how painful I was in 2014. There are so many touching stories/messages behind the photo. Did she look at her young photo to reminisce youth? Or, did she memorize the lost family member?

Photo Diary / Family album

Within the context of Photographic Group of Philippiada Ka.dro meetings, I will present on Wednesday, March 18, 2015, my photographic projects “Photo diary” and “Family Album”.

Photo Diary

On this day, seven years ago, I created my Photo Diary, one Calendar in which I documented photographically my daily life. Every day a new photograph and this is lasted for 2,5 years.
Making a brief assessment of this experience, I would like to say that the most interesting and powerful pictures are hidden into simple, insignificant, everyday moments.

Photographie Surrealiste

"Photographie Surrealiste" - French documentary, in greek

Their names are Man Ray, Dora Maar, Alvarez Bravo, Brassai, André Kertesz or Henri Cartier-Bresson. They're counting amongst the greatest photographers of the 20th century.
During the 1930's, their images embodied the most intense and lively side of surrealism.

The images are questionned trough animation techniques. They're dismantled, put back together again, brought back into play. Those images are " brought to life ", showing us the choices, the serendipity and their inner strength.
Each photography shown in the film becomes a story on its own, a little photographic drama who's only ending while reaching the finale picture.
The audience gets inside the process, the work on light and frame, the superimposing, solarisation, photomontage and slowly becomes itself part of this intricate game between photography, imagination and reality.
