Photography allows us to perceive perpetual moments of quality vision. It describes our relationship with the present and explains the value of memory, like the distance between presence and ignorance.
Panayiotis Lamprou (www.panayiotislamprou.com) is a Greek photographer. He lives and works in Athens and every summer travels to his summer house in Schinoussa.
He was introduced to photography in 1998 at the “Ciclo Fotografico” in Athens [“Photographic Cycle”]. In 1999 he studied at the Centro di Ricerca e Archiviazione della Fotografia” [“Center for Research and Archives of Photography”] in Spilimbergo, Italy. His professors were Platon Rivellis, Guido Guidi and Pannos Kokkinias.
Panayiotis Lamprou’s work is devoted to researching pure photography. While he recognises that our vision captures everything we see – to comprehend life surrounding us – he constructs his photographic images without interacting with their theme, so as to allow the spectator the possibility to read and interpret the space’s identity and its light.
