Pregnant Pauses – In this series, Vassilis Konstantinou captures moments of family and everyday routine, balancing between reality and fantasy. The stage heroes, members of his family and himself, sometimes give the impression of professional actors playing their part and sometimes they appear to portray themselves.
These Pauses imply an ambiguous “before” and an uncertain “after”. In a subtle manner, they attempt to perhaps illustrate the calm before the storm. Photographs standing still in blue, images encouraging the viewer to set them in motion, either in the future or in the past, ultimately revealing or hiding their secrets.
Vassilis Konstantinou was born in 1979 in Athens where he currently lives. He studied Physical Education and Sport Science in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. His involvement with photography started in 2007. Since then he has attended the following seminars conducted by Platon Rivellis “Introduction to Art Photography” (annual), “Photography Critique” and “Portfolio Critique”. Since 2014 he is studying Photography and Audiovisual Arts at the University of Western Attica.
