Evangelos Stamoulakis

I was born in Preveza, where I put down roots, starting my family and
exercising my profession independently, up to this day.
Photography entered my life from the beginning of my teenage years, though
it never became a means of income, and, thus, I remained an amateur, taking
photography on a personal and, sometimes, lonely journey.
Primarily self taught, I have participated in national and international
workshops with fellow photographers whose work have at times been
particularly influential in the course my photography took.
Though I have never before presented my work in a personal exhibition, I
participated in group exhibitions and was one of the finalists of the
Photobook Dummy Awards at Photometria Festival 2017.

Joseph Galanakis

Joseph Galanakis was born and raised in Athens.  His studies were on computers and photography.  He began photographing at a young age borrowing his mother?s small amateur camera with a 110 cassette, which he still has to this day. He had been amateurly involved in photography and video travelling until 2008 when he started freelancing for various agencies abroad, photographing the riots in Athens of financial crisis. These last 5 years he is into war photography covering Iraq and Ukraine. He is passionate with people and the aim of his photography is to bring out their truths, their lives and their concerns.  He is not good in words and that is probably the reason why he prefers to ?speaks? through his photos.
