About Stelios Kleanthous

From the time i was a child, I remember been attracted to the spirit of the natural world.
I use photography as a way to document the world around me,creating pictures that call attention to details that most of the people overlook.
This helps me also to engage more deeply with where I am in space and time.
My goal is to create photographs that draw viewers into the now.
A focus on details and colours keeps us in the present,
it stops us for a moment,from fretting on the future or regretting the past.
I feel like my photographs are like a physical meditation.
My choice of subject comes from my interest in ideas about beauty of nature,and emotional connections.
I enjoy creating photographs that capture moments in speed of time.
| photograph people and nature, because I want to preserve a moment in time.
Recently I have focused on the sea and storms because i wanted to capture the mood through light and composition,
and hope the the viewer can feel and taste the sea and wind thru my photos.
