Aris Kamarotos received his degrees in photography from E.S.P. and Leica Academy, Athens, Greece (1999-2002).
He has participated in group exhibitions such as the Athens Photo Festival, the Fringe Festival and has presented one solo exhibition titled “India, a country of contrasts”.
He is involved in various types of photography such as street, portraits and performing arts.
In theatre, he has collaborated with a number of production companies, worked with acclaimed stage directors such as Michail Marmarinos and Zoe Chatziantoniou, and undertook the photoshooting of several music events.
From 2012 to 2015 he traveled around the country with “The Barber of Seville” production of the National Opera of Greece as the main photographer of the touring project.
Aris’ work has been published in magazines and has also been featured in various websites and online portals.
His passion for analog photography has led him towards film and darkroom printing. Constant observer of light, Aris composes frames with a sense of nostalgia, even in street photography when he captures spontaneous shots of the everyday life.
He currently lives and works in Athens.
