Nicos Economopoulos is a peripatetic photographer – even his home page is called ontheroad.gr. From that page I found out about his Odessa workshop, planned for end of May. It was cancelled, because of the violence in Ukraine, but, in the end, he summoned the participants in Athens instead. During seven evenings Nikos discussed each participants’ pictures made during the day. Most times he went beyond technical issues and launched himself in lengthy monologues on the meaning of photography, life and everything. I took some notes and below are 24 quotes that can offer a glimpse on Nikos’ style and depth.
I have to mention that most of the quotes were part of discussing a specific picture and may appear out of context, use of imagination is recommended to fill the gaps. All the pictures of Nikos Economopoulos presented below are form Magnum Photos official website. Also, the pictures and quotes are arranged randomly.
