Eleytheria_deco_by_portrait_photographer_athens_greece_Dimitris_Vlaikos

Eleytheria Deco for Kappa Magazine

In this portrait photography I was pleased to meet and work with one of my favourite greek artists, the lighting designer Eleytheria Deco. I knew Eletheria's Deco work since 2004 when she awarded with EMI award for the light design of the Olympic Games ceremony "Athens 2004 Olympics".

Since then and due to our common interest, "light" ("phos", greek word for light and first synthetic work for photo-graphy) , I have been watching her works with great interest. She has an open field of design like theaters, festivals, museums, public spaces, events and architectural lighting projects. The special thing with her works is that sometimes it is like she has a signature and gives you a feeling that you can identify her aesthetic.

Her recent work was the light design of Acropolis. The new lighting will highlight nine points of the ancient monument: the Acropolis hill, the walls, the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, the Theater of Dionysus, the Stoa of Eumenes and the Sanctuary of Dionysus. As the Culture Ministry underlines, for the first time the choragic monument of Thrasyllos, the Asklepieion of Athens, the caves of Apollo and Aglauros, and the Sanctuary of Aphrodite, will all be illuminated.

It was great pleasure of meeting and work with her for this portrait season for her interview in Kappa Magazine of Kathimerini newspaper. Her portraits published on 19-12-2020.

when observing people, one is always amazed by the many different forms they take and the expressions a human being can have – expressing cultures, character, colors and habits. have you ever considered how unique each one of us is as we express our own culture, language, family, country, profession, artistic influences and way of life? we call this encapsulation a “portrait” and it is what i find most fascinating as i endeavor to capture it all in photographs.

"Evzones" The Greek Presidential Guard in Acropolis

Almost 150 years in existence, the elite evzones unit, as greece’s presidential guard is known, is much more than just a tourist spectacle sunday morning at the acropolis and the sun is just starting to make an appearance. as much of the city slumbers, a presidential guard unit marches up the sacred rock to raise the flag, a mystical, 20-minute ceremony encompassing the nation’s history, collective memory, traditions and symbols.
