Whispers of Silence

    Georgios Digalakis

Light is everything in photography. But this is not what I most remember about these remote aquatic ecosystems; it is silence. A deep silence unknown in urban areas, a secret garden that inspires me to create peaceful images with a “zen” quality. Minimalism is for me, not only an art movement, but mainly a way of life. I am constantly looking for simple, clear compositions that will allow me to create minimalist images, characterized by and evoke feelings of order, silence and a peaceful, yet often sorrowful and lonesome atmosphere.
