Perpetual Urban Motion

Online Exhibition

The City.

The people, the buildings, the sea, all that surrounds it. In constant motion.

Thousands of images.

The magic of urban photography is that within a fraction of a second after the camera clicks, everything changes.

But the moment you captured here it remains. As an image of the past.

At the point your attention is focused the light changes, the sun is against you, clouds pass by, the light disappears.

And then, while waiting, you see an image that stimulates your mind.

You click the camera…

Exhibition Information

Have you ever wondered what photography is? In the era of Instagram and with over 1.43 trillion photographs taken just in 2020, nearly everybody has turned into a potential photographer. But what is it really photography?

Greek born street photographer Dimitris Nikolaou gives us a hint on what photography is all about:

Photography is capturing the moment.
Photography is turning your imagination into an image.
Photography is finding light inside darkness.

His lens momentarily captures the urban beauty of a city perpetually in motion.

Dimitris Nikolaou – Bio

He was born in Athens in 1965 where he still lives.
He studied electrical engineering at Technological Education Institute of Piraeus.
Photography captured his heart from an early age. In the last ten years or so, he has taken photographs in a more systematic way. His main interests are city moments, the urban and suburban landscape and the picture depiction of his thoughts and imagination.  He is always searching the angle and light that will enable him to capture the moments the way he sees them.

Δημήτρης Νικολάου

Γεννήθηκε το 1965 στην Αθήνα όπου και κατοικεί.
Σπούδασε στο ΤΕΙ Πειραιά, Σχολή Τεχνολογικών Εφαρμογών Τμήμα Ηλεκτρολογίας.
Με την φωτογραφία πρωτοασχολήθηκε κατά τα νεανικά του χρονιά. Τα τελευταία 10 περίπου χρόνια ασχολείται συστηματικά. Κύριό του ενδιαφέρον είναι οι στιγμές της πόλης, το αστικό και περιαστικό τοπίο και η αποτύπωση των σκέψεων και της φαντασίας  του σε εικόνα. Αναζητά πάντα γωνίες και φως που αποτυπώνουν τις στιγμές όπως τις βλέπει αυτός.
