Trilogy by Antonis Giakoumakis

In the photographs there are thematic elements interrelated, mutually influencing each other that become distinct over the course of the photographic years. The dominant element of my photography is the person who is ultimately also the ....starting point of the subjects I photograph.

“Everything is a subject. Every subject has a rhythm. Feeling is the reason for being. The photograph is an unchanging moment of such a raison of existence, which continues to live within it.”….. said André Kertész!

 I believe that every photographer has a subject or several that trouble him and lead him to capture moments and images. At first it may not be fully conscious but in the process, it becomes.

The Subject, is therefore the starting point of the photographic process.

In the photographs there are thematic elements interrelated, mutually influencing each other that become distinct over the course of the photographic years.

The dominant element of my photography is the person who is ultimately also the ….starting point of the subjects I photograph.

I observe him and record him in the environment, in his space, in conditions that he shaped or were shaped for him (an element that I try to elicit).

Homo, Mare, Terrae.

Three themes, three references, three approaches possibly with different form, composition and varying elements or content between them. But by the same approach, I mean aesthetic, conceptual and not necessarily of technique or homogeneity.

Three main elements of my photographic search and expression are Man (form), Sea (water) and Land (earth and trees).

A photographic trilogy that was created “on the way” unintentionally, “tying” photos from scattered “clicks” through time in different personal moments, in unexpected spaces – places.

Along the way, the necessary coherence was found between them due to my own inner thoughts, situations, emotional processes but also searches in order to conceptually make …”stories”, producing a conscious semiology.

As I often emphasize, because I believe so, if… through the combination of these frames an atmosphere is created a spark, maybe then it will prompt the viewer to make their own narratives. To take him on a journey… as he would not have expected!

I consider photography to be the art of perception as a result of a “representation” of unpredictable moments.

Anyway, human life is full of images, events that are registered in our memory like photographs.

Homo, Mare, Terrae.

About Antonis Giakoumakis

Antonis Giakoumakis was born and raised in Chania, Crete. Now, he lives in Chalandri, Attica. He has been systematically dealing with photography since 2012, having been absorbed by IT for 37 years prior to that. He has attended many seminars and participated in group exhibitions and competitions. On May 27, 2023, he had the opening of his retrospective photography exhibition entitled: “Static Mobility, in Time,” in Chalandri, Attica. Many of his photographic series have been published, mainly in foreign but also in Greek magazines and specialized websites.

Photography for him is one or more clicks that capture an event, a scene, immobilizing time in the space where it takes place. This inadvertently creates a new reality or, rather, an awareness that he feels the need to share with others, with the expectation of understanding. Yes, he believes the photo is not objective! It’s a constant reminder that the world is not as we see it….

The photographic record transforms into an emotion at the moment of capture, capturing a fleeting memory. He considers photography to be the art of perception as a result of a “representation” of unpredictable moments. After all, human life is full of images, events that are registered in our memory like photographs.
