Alexandros Vrettakos was born in 1964 in Kozani, where
he currently lives. He is a gym instructor and a basketball
coach. Concurrently, he teaches photography in the
Photography Laboratory of Kozani. Originally, he studied
photography in Novi-Sad (Yugoslavia) and his related
work comprises 13 personal exhibitions, such as Black-and-White,
Just before and after, The glass eye, Acrobats, The
decline of a sunrise, and others.
He is involved with black-white photography and his
themes come from the street. He develops and prints
his own photographs because he believes that the process
ends only after the image is displayed on paper. There
is no digital intervention in his photographs but just
maskings during the printing process, created by hand.
