Thank you very much, Yiannis! Algy isn’t quite sure what this is, but it looks like a fine place for a party, as well as being a fine photograph :)

Algy knows that your language is not English, and he is very sorry that he cannot speak Greek, so he will just say “Thank You!”. He loves the amazing photographs you show at jkrikis.

Yiannis Krikis (jkrikis)

I was born in Thessaloniki (Greece) in 1958, where I still live today.

I have been involved with photography for over 40 years. For 15 years of those years, I was a professional photographer in the fields of advertising and publishing.

I am a self-taught photographer and I learned many things working alongside older photographers while I did my studies at the Polytechnic Thessaloniki.

For me, photography is a continuous form of psychotherapy, and I cannot imagine that I will ever stop shooting.

I photograph mainly landscapes, portraits and cityscapes - things I can find in the streets or in nature. Anything that creates a nice composition, tells a story, or evokes symbolism or some feeling. Another big part of my work is music concerts, mainly jazz.

At the present time, I work with digital media - a Nikon D7100, an Olympus E-P1 and an iPhone 4S.
