Alexandros Vrettakos
cv

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.

 

"PORTRAITS"

About photography
The perception of our world through our sight creates the misconception that we see and understand what happens around us.
Photography provides the opportunity to explore, locate, isolate and emphasize what is seen and in this way create a different reality of our own.
The photographic machine is an unparalleled magical box. It can capture so much important vitality in it, still and silent, as a filter that distinguishes the superfluous from the necessary and creates unique worlds in which everyone finds something intimate, forgotten and stranded from life and time.
