The future will tell a lot. So how do you see Greek photography With the greatest optimism. Many young and good photographers and even with such a short history. Even photojournalism has improved. I can’t say anything about fashion and advertising because they are photographic areas that I am ignorant of. Don’t you consider the number of photographers and photographs of the Circle exhibition excessive If space allowed I would like to put more. I personally am happy to show and see many photos. If one gets tired one can visit the exhibition several times. The only thing I want to emphasize is that since each photographer occupies a small space exclusively for him it is good for the viewer to concentrate on the totality of the photographs of this one photographer as if it were a mini solo exhibition.
What do you think about Photography Schools I only e-commerce photo editing know Focus where I teach. For the others I have heard from students who were also students of these schools since as you understand my seminar is also attended by students of schools for a more general education. So I think that Schools in Greece are no worse or better than those abroad. I’m only afraid that the mandatory attendance of often contradictory courses by all students regardless of their photographic goals is detrimental to the course. I would dream of a kind of freer School with a core of courses and the possibility of choices. But I recognize that this is very difficult to do. I would also like to improve the level of technical training of graduates. In schools most courses are theoretical and even extremely theoretical and very few are purely technical.
Let’s cover the easy stuff first which is the technique and we’ll see about the rest. Only that proper technical instruction requires more funds than theoretical courses. So I recognize again that all this is difficult. What do you think about photography magazines and what exactly is your magazine publication Fotochoros I will answer as in the previous question that they are not better or worse than foreign ones. Photography magazines with a variety of content have generally survived. A little technical easy a few portfolios easy tests and ads. This lack of character does not sit well with me. I would like a magazine with cheap printing and lots of serious information and news and another with better printing and possibly a much thinner circulation with photo portfolios. I’m afraid the second one wouldn’t be financially viable.
