"The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes. Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy, the flâneur finds the world "picturesque.""
—Susan Sontag


BIO

Anargyros Drolapas is a Greek photographer living in Athens. His academic background is a combination of degrees about Physics, Education, Science Education, Photography and Digital Language. His photographic work focuses on a personal narration of hidden underlying realities that tend to remain unnoticed. Usually his projects are oriented towards storytelling and thought associations inspired by art, literature and dreams. Although he enjoys discovering ready-made situations while he photographs, quite often he interferes with the stage.
