George Papacharalambus "Berlin 2009 - ....
Berlin 2009 - ...., is a photographic series still in progress that started in Berlin and consists of - mainly but not exclusively - portraits. The focus is usually on the unseen and the rarer side of the persons portraied. They are strangers met by coincidence, intuitively approached at random locations. The specifics of the site as such are irrelevant and stand out only combined with the element of light in order to create a new setting where lights, space and feelings merge, sometimes rendering the person invisible or totally absent, transformed and reduced to his initiating role.
George Papacharalambus was born in 1983 in Thessaloniki (Greece). He studied at the Technical University, followed by two years at the Photography Center of Thessaloniki. 2003 he attended a workshop with Anders Petersen. In Berlin he became a masterclass student of Arno Fischer at the Ostkreuzschule. His photography has been shown in several group exhibitions in Greece and abroad.
