Inside EMST Athens

It’s been a year since I started trying to get into the new EMST building, Athens’ new Museum of Contemporary Art. I have been negotiating this with the Museum staff and it’s been really difficult for various reasons, one of them being the Museum not being ready. The building is the old Fix beer factory, a landmark in the area which for years has been under reconstruction and most Athenians have been impatient to visit it. The time is near for this, as the first step has been made and slowly the museum will be ready to open to the public.  This Saturday 17/5 I got invited to a press conference and I was allowed to bring some fellow photographers with me to shoot the inside of the new EMST. I must say I am very happy I had the opportunity for early access to this beautiful, new art space in the city. I can’t wait to shoot it again and looking forward to see it opening to the public soon. Here are some photos I managed to take so you can also get an idea of the building’s interior, as well as some more fun shots with my friends!

WWIM11

For the 11th World Wide Instameet we decided to meet up at the Olympic Sport Complex in Athens on Sunday 22 March. This was my fourth Instameet and I am very happy to see this community grow bigger and stronger every time. The weather didn’t really help much to be outside as much as we would have liked, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Getting out of your comfort zone is always rewarding to your creativity. I got lost inside the complex with @malddim and we had such a laugh. It was great to see old friends and really nice meeting new ones! Here are some shots from the wwim11_athens! If you are feeling nostalgic see the post from WWIM9

#emptystegi

This short time that I have been working with Stegi, some amazing things have happened. One of them is that I was given the chance to arrange an Instagram event along the lines of the #empty movement that has been happening in museums around the world.

The team at Stegi (Onassis Cultural Center)  is very forward thinking & always edgy in everything that they do, so arranging the event was a breeze. But what’s even better, there are many more digital events to come. I couldn’t be any happier working with such an institution! Here are some of my shots from the event but you can also follow @stegi_occ on Instagram & check #emptystegi for more excellent content!

O.A.K.A photo walk

A late post but it’s never too late for some portraiture! This area in Marousi has been photographed so many times that we knew this photo walk was more about hanging out with each other and having a laugh rather than doing any actual shooting. And then the sun was setting and the summer light became magical. Time to shoot some happy faces!
