From a Distance by Antonis Giakoumakis

This series of my photos, which has been captured in a photo book, is nothing more than an attempt to approach human moments that are most often done subconsciously. An effort that continues.

This series of my photos, which has been captured in a photo book, is nothing more than an attempt to approach human moments that are most often done subconsciously. An effort that continues.

Observing people from a distance I feel that I distance myself and that I become more objective, more free! The big horizon, the most complete image of the space, creates an incomparable sense of harmony and form…. a calm. So, many times you get the feeling of changing time with leaps into the past or the future.

The power of photography for me lies in symmetry, clarity and austerity, to create emotions, narratives and reminiscent of music and poems we have heard or read. To be able to highlight the experiences of the photographer to bring to the surface his memories, because photography is their “recorder”.

I do not believe nor do I try with my photos to “make” a concept, I am more interested to create an atmosphere a spark through its frame or a part of it, which may manage to urge the viewer to create his own narratives. To take us on trips we did not expect to go.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Too often I go back to the places where I’ve been before and take pictures again and again, in an attempt to capture the “ideal” atmosphere I would like and  that may be different each time as it depends on the emotional and  my mental state that I am in the specific time, as well as the given scene that fleetingly passes before my eyes.

So, I try to approach my subject in an abstract way, putting as little information as possible in the composition of the frame isolating only the essential, with the greatest possible objectivity, so as to bring the human to the forefront, knowing that many times this may be… an illusion!

Friedrich Nietzsche emphasizes that, “Freedom, is to be able to have some distance from others”….
