"This year, when we are stuck, when time counts twice and every minute instills new uncertainties, we need a conscious effort to recall our festive mood, to direct it from memory, even when the surrounding atmosphere weighs on us. We will help you with that - we hope. Our goal, when planning this year's "Gourmet" Christmas tribute, was to cultivate as never before the illusion of the holiday, the transcendental warmth of Christmas, through a moving descent journey into the past. A spiritual and real journey to six separate points on the map of Greece.
Four journalists, three photographers and six chefs scattered to the four corners of the Greek territory, in Xanthi, Zakynthos, Hydra, Lesvos, Syros and back to Athens, with the destination of six great mansions that opened their doors for us for the first time and the sets were made to photograph six separate holiday menus. These trips took place just before the second lockdown, in difficult conditions, with many adversities that we had to overcome. We did it, and now, in this introductory note - which is written almost at the end of the whistle, when the whole issue is ready to leave for the printing house and we are correcting the last details - you will forgive us for advancing the feeling. You have not yet turned the pages, you have not been immersed in the images and words that try - and we believe succeed - to convey the emotion, pride and affection we felt coming in contact with these great landmarks of Hellenism. Meeting them was an exercise in self-knowledge.
Walking around the spaces, climbing stairs, listening to squeaks and strange sounds, breathing air of old wet closure, we completed with our senses the stories that were told to us about each mansion by the people who welcomed us. We took pictures, seasons and whole worlds. Greek worlds that pre-existed, that clashed, that correlated or annulled each other. That fermented, that flourished, that bore ideas, art, spirit, matter and taste". Text By the chief editor of Gatronomos Magazine, Angelos Rentoulas.

Oinoxoos After Quarantine Cover

The greek magazine "Oinochoos" about the Greek wine and wine culture, first cover after quarantine days. The idea was a cover of showing our common emotions due of the quarantine days and the step by step come back of us in normality. Over all comes the role of wine in the greek culture and economy.

In this magazine cover I used portrait photography and a dystopic scenery as backround to capture the different forms and emotions of human beings on the five magazine editors to describe balance - independence - the next unknown step - stability - social distancing. A look to the future, ours and the Greek wine from the ancient times to the present day, is a cornerstone of our culture, tradition and prosperity.

Dear editors of "Oinochoos" magazine thank you from the bottom of my heart for your cooperation and trust for this cover.

Anthony_Howard_Portrait_commercial_Photographer_Athens-Greece_Dimitris_Vlaikos-1

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.
