Photo exhibition: Glances on the mountain of Gods

After a highly successful first edition, the unique Greek film festival dedicated to adventure outdoor activities, returned for the second consecutive year in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece.

The 2nd Thessaloniki Adventure Film Festival  held on 10th of April 2016, in Warehouse D of THPA, at the Thessaloniki port. Athletes, filmmakers, photographers, equipment and outdoor activity companies, joined forces again at an unprecedented for the Greek standards thematic festival.

Adventure Film Festival made me the honor to host a photo exhibition of selected stunning landscapes regarding Olympus mountain -as part of the parallel events- with the support of Canon Greece. The otherworldly scenery composed by "Stefani" and "Zeus Throne" - the eternal symbols of the mythical mountain of Gods-, the magical starry sky from the highest point of Greece, the snowy steep slopes and deep ravines were the main elements that visitors had the chance to enjoy and transport themselves mentally into the stunning scenery.

Moreover, the festival visitors had the opportunity to acquire those images after a draw held at the closure of the event.

At this point I would like to thank the festival organizers for hosting one of my projects for the second consecutive year, at a unique, for the Greek standards event, promoting the adventure outdoor activities, giving to all of us the opportunity to meet unique experiences of extraordinary people for whom the exploration is a way of life.

Finally, I owe special thanks to Canon Greece company for the support and the photographic equipment that provides to me.

See you at the next Adventure Film Festival!
