Mainly portrait and fashion photographer, also in charge of photography at the Thessaloniki International Film and Documentary Festivals! Nevertheless, I met him at the studio, during a photo shoot for olive-oil products, one of those sessions that can last up to three hours…
Daniel Kukla was daily equipped with a mirror and an easel and wandered in the desert for a month in order to photograph the so called Edge Effect. That is, the sharp environmental changes that take place when two distinct ecosystems meet.
…And this how everything started! Yiannis Solomozis’s Archshop is an innovative company that designs and produces fabrics and soft furnishings, offering the choice to “dress” interiors with everyday-use products that project elements of one’s self in one’s own space! ‘Family shop with factory potential’, ‘A firework that exploded like a bomb’ in the world of domestic and business upholstery and fabrics is just a small sample from the comments the company has received by private and wholesale clients. Archshop proves beyond doubt that even when a large part of the market collapses due to some crisis… quality, innovative ideas, and friendly prices always stand out and survive. The economic crisis, in this case, brought forth the virtual fabrics of Yannis Solomozis with which he dresses spaces, and what follows shows how goals can be achieved with realistic and cautious moves, fresh ideas, and a lot of hard work. Victory favours the bold, after all.
In a world where its limits have been drastically minimized mainly because of the Internet, it has become a true struggle for one's work to be recognized since it has to face a constantly evolving competition. Under such circumstances however, Bill Gekas, a Greek-Australian photographer, managed to stand out due to his talent and love for photography. To this he had the undoubtable contribution of his adorable daughter Athena, who is also the main model for his work. It is highly likely you have already heard of his name or your glance may have lingered long enough over one of his projects, trying to distinguish whether it is a photograph or a painting. In between tough working schedules, time difference and many, many greek-english emails, Artcore magazine managed to steal some of his precious time and discover the man behind the lens.
