Street Photography by Anthimos Ntagkas

Street photographer Anthimos Ntagkas is always on the lookout for an interesting scene. With a keen eye for observation, Ntagkas is able to capture small, humorous coincidences that most of us overlook. From people unknowingly mimicking a nearby mural to a man's bird tattoo appearing in the sky, these charming scenes are immortalized for eternity thanks to Ntagkas.

While he used to wait at his favorite locations for people to pass by, Ntagkas' creative process changed over time. And, thanks to that change, he's opened himself up to even more creative possibilities.

Nowadays, I don't choose the place, but I make every location work for me,” he tells My Modern Met. “I combine people with elements everywhere I stand. Luckily the themes in this type of photography are endless, and I never lose interest.”

Ntagkas is always pushing himself to do something different with his work. And through his street photography, he's found the perfect creative outlet.

“It is not only capturing the moment and the people in the streets,” Ntagkas explains, “but you also have to be an artistic director in order to combine people and elements in a fascinating perspective.”

Anthimos Ntagkas is known for his creative street photography.
