One of Greece’s leading photographers, John Demos captures the spirit of the people. He pictures the traditional life of Greece. These are people who simply do what they have always done—with their rituals of procession, feast days, marriages and burials. These are images that reach far back in time. Consciously or unconsciously, ancient myths are reenacted.
John Demos is an active promoter of photography in Greece. He founded Apeiron Photos, Greece’s largest and most successful photoagency and has curated some of the most significant exhibitions in Greece. His work is held in major collections internationally, including: Bibliothèque Nationale and Centre George Pompidou (Paris), Art Institute of Chicago, Gulbenkian, and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
