Authentic Street Stories (20 photos)

1082051473

Lukas Vasilikos is a photographer from Athens, Greece who brings incredible stories on the street to life. Using light and shadows, he finds ways to highlight certain subjects, creating melancholy moods that seem surprisingly authentic. He also somehow manages to capture decisive moments all the while taking into consideration how the composition of the photo will help tell the story. Just how does he do it? It may help that Vasilikos sees the world in a very unique way. As he says, “The street is a field with endless possibilities, where surprises always hide behind the next corner. When I walk with my camera in my hands, the street life transforms into a theatrical act, a play that is taking place for me only. Regardless of the name of the city, the time of the year or the day, streets are like living creatures, beating hearts, with their very own character. I just have to listen carefully to all these stories taking place in front of my eyes and my lens, justify the shapes, the colors and the forms. And the best part of it is that this play never ends.”
