Beauty: A Controversial Concept

According to the Oxford dictionary, beauty is a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight, but also the intellect or moral sense.

Personally, beauty is a subjective and controversial concept which highlights the diversity of these senses, interpreted differently based on our background, upbringing and interests.

Beauty and ugliness are inextricably linked and indiscernible. This series of photographs discloses my personal perception of beauty, hidden for example  in simplicity, friendship or love.


A few Words about George Zampas

I was born in Athens, a city of dense urban environment, which  is an amalgam of historical monuments, newly-constructed and abandoned buildings, contributing to the city’s aesthetic appearance. Growing up in such a vibrant environment I developed an anthropogenic interest in photography.

I am a photographer interested in urban/street photography and travel photography where people’s emotions are reflected in my photos. Through my lens I capture small details of urban environments around the world, which give a flavour of the city. My work has been highly commended in The Photographic Angle’s Competition: Urban Street Art and also exhibited in the prestigious Guildhall Art Gallery in London.


Meet the artist: Tuesday 13 June, 6.30pm-8.30pm
