Yiannis Simos (1981). Self-taught. Photographing since 2001. Photography instructor and founder of BlackBox photography school based in Athens.
Photography mediates my relationship to the world.
Wandering around with my camera forces me to look more intensively and to see things from perspectives I have never imagined before.
In pursuing the expressive limits of the medium I constantly find new reasons for making photographs. As this process occupies most of my time, professional and personal, for the last 15 years, it becomes my way of knowing myself and of re-inventing my identity.
