MYRMIDONES photo-book release

MYRMIDONES_dimitris_vlaikos_photo"MYRMIDONES" is the imprint of Dimitris Vlaikos' search on the island of Aegina for the last 20 years.
Focusing on people, the photographer walks a path of observation and understanding of the elements composing the place where he was born and raised.
Light, a key tool in his work, turns into an object of study in terms of its effect on the character, perception, creativity and course of life, both of the island's inhabitants and of himself. Through his lens he wishes to discover how his experiences have become the memory which influences and shapes his choices, his perspective and the aesthetic approach to his work.
The images in the book present moments from the daily life of the inhabitants, portraits of people interacting with their environment, and all those elements that make up the culture which inspires, challenges and embraces the Myrmidons of yesterday and today.

Yacht Photography Greece for IYC

I was always wondering about what it’s like to live on a yacht. It’s a question that many people who have always wanted to take a holiday on a luxury yacht have pondered. In this one day lifestyle yacht photography in Athens, me and my team, we were lucky to enjoy the experience and capture of what life on a yacht be like. The photoshoot started with the first morning light and during the day I captured many possible enjoyments that a couple could have in privacy inside and outside a yacht. I won’t answer the question of "how life in a yacht is" in words, but I will answer it in pictures. The decision is yours.
