University of Edinburgh Photographic Society, “Elements & Journeys” Exhibition

 

 

Hello my dear friends!

ย  I’m very happy to share with you this exhibition that i was blessed to be a part of. PhotoSoc is the photographic society of the University of Edinburgh that was founded in 1890 and it’s the older and largest university photographic society in the UK. FOAPTH (Photography Club of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) is an independent photography society based in Greece that was founded in 1987. For more than 25 years, the society has organized photography lessons, trips, exhibitions and other photography related activities.

ย  2014 marks FOAPTH’s first collaboration with PhotoSoc, with an entry of 15 photos for the “Elements” category. As a member of FOAPTH, i participated with 2 photos, choosing the element of water. The opening of the exhibition took place at the Mash House in Edinburgh, on the 29th of March. I had no way to be there but luckily one of the FOAPTH members, Vasilis, had moved to Edinburgh a few months ago and took some photos of the exhibition.

ย  Now my photos can brag about having been in Edinburgh! One day, i hope i can say i’ve been to Edinburgh myself! ๐Ÿ˜€ Who knows what the future holds but one thing we do know, 15 photos of PhotoSoc members will in turn be displayed in the annual FOAPTH exhibition in late May in Thessaloniki, Greece.

MyrฯŒ Vitrina | Body Painting Show :: Elizabeth Petrou : “Mourning for Today – Act: 0”

ย 

ย  I recently got to photograph a live body-painting show by the very talented make-up artist, Elizabeth Petrou. This was something totally new for me and was really looking forward for this experience. The whole show took place behind a display window so people who were passing by, could experience the transformation of two models into statues. The show was part of the opening for an exhibition of the Greek Marble Initiative on the 23th January 2014, at MyrฯŒ Gallery, Thessaloniki.
