New York City, on this very early morning.
‘Somewhere’ is an ongoing project of mine, with soundscapes in the place of impossible images. I will soon tell you more about it as I will publish it in a new page in the website by the end of March. In the meantime though, I suggest you explore this vivid selection of soundworks, created and curated by the ICA- I discovered it after my visit there yesterday and I think it’s a great project and resource.

I’ve been back in NYC, preparing new things to show you soon. In the meanwhile, here is a picture of Manhattan, as seen from Brooklyn heights amidst a freezing wind, snow and -6C !
That’s an outtake from my third and final December shoot that I completed last week in New York City. Featuring my beautiful friend Clio, it is reminding me of Brooklyn and bright sunshine in the beginnings of a cold winter. As we are heading back to Greece for the holidays, I cherish this small collection of photographs with all my heart – they are the first taste of a New York life.

Tomorrow we will be releasing the film documentary of Nikos Erinakis und die Haken, that hopes to stand as a visual poem on the wild world that they create through music and words. It is called “Dark love of a Wild Generation” and it is almost an hour long- the longest film I ‘ve created yet.
Meanwhile, above you can see the first part that we had published earlier this year- a short one that follows them on their preparations of their studio recordings in Athens, GR. I hope you enjoy it -more tomorrow.
Here is a preview from my second December shoot, featuring visual artist Anna Marcell. This time, we played with mist, duvets and red lips. The third and last shoot on this theme will follow in a week’s time. Meanwhile, what does December mean to you?
That’s a preview from today’s shoot with beautiful Tomo. It is inspired by my beloved month of December, and it is all shot with bright sunlight on instant film. More images to follow soon.
