Photographer Makis Makris was born and now lives in the city of Kavala, Greece. Makis’ first contact with photography was through a seminar on artistic photography organized by the Photoclub of Kavala, one of the longest-standing cultural associations in the country. Makis is a member of the B.U.L.B. Photo Collective (Bucharest Urban League of photographers for the Balkans), which is based in Bucharest and comprises a number of notable photographers from the different Balkan countries.

“In my work, I do not follow a specific project, but I feel that I am on a continuous course of photographic practice, feeling the need to express myself through this process and to satisfy my need for creation. Photography for me is a creative process that has, as a starting point, the internalized (esoteric) world of the creator and how he tries to express and commune all of his innermost thoughts and concerns to his surroundings through images. Elements (fragments) that compose the daily life, which are located either in the most familiar and intimate places or outside as a part of the complexity of the human activities, are the raw materials of which the photographer becomes a creator of a new world, a new reality, a substantially transformed one! All these elements free from their actual substance become a sum of hints, within lies the truth of the photographer himself and the code of his view of the world.”
