The Limits Between Space And Landscape

Documentary Photography As A Starting Point

A Personal Look That Functions On A Symbolic Level

The work of award-winning press photographer Yannis Kontos traverses almost all major events around the globe and many minor ones, impressing upon them a personal look that can be communicatively direct, while functioning on a symbolic level. Violent borders and war conflicts, refugees and immigrants, aspiring orators and beauties seeking a better luck, closed societies torn apart, all reveal in his photographs vividly the fate of that contemporary man which has the least power to define his fate.
