Who is Panos Laskarakis?
His first photographic experiences take place in 2005 and are rapidly evolving into a photographic domino experience, knowledge and technique in various parts of the world such as the Arctic, North American, African, Asian, European and Greek National Parks , capturing life from a differential view.
Photography for me includes wildlife, landscapes and tribes around the world and translates as love, exploration, passion, adventure and creation. I always pursue the ultimate action and feel really alive when I am amidst the greatness of the elements of nature. I could travel for days to the unknown by searching for spontaneous moments and different scenes, even if it is a single photographic shot. Every time I take a seat behind my camera where there is always something different to capture.
The key to make a photo feel alive is hidden in the vast variety of life and cultures as well as in the great spectacles that emerge through the magnificent power of nature.
But photography is not only the delimitation of the image at the place of the main action but also the moment of printing and presentation where nature comes to life in front of the viewers’ eyes in the exhibition space …
There, the feelings of the photographer, the creator and the viewer become one. There the picture acquires substance and is defined in its perfection.
What he said about Zagorochoria and Epirus:
In the heart of Epirus, Zagorohoria is a network of traditional stone villages, perched on the northern mountain range of Pindos, Mount Tymphi (2497m), and compose a puzzle of unique landscapes, gorges, rivers, stone bridges, giant mountains and alpine lakes. It is a natural wildlife park with a huge variety of flora and fauna. Every season of the year, the greatness of nature is transformed into different representations of colors and forms. In this small beautiful world, I am invited to reveal the well kept secrets of photography during these photographic missions …
