Photographic Pairs 2012


Each exhibition in series Photographic Pairs features the work of two photographers, both members of the Photography Circle, whose paths in life or photography cross.


The new photographic pair are Lukas Vasilikos and Christina Sorovou, whose friendship emerged from their shared passion for the art of photography.


Sorovou’s black and white photographs are of friends and family while Vasilikos’ color photographs mainly depict street scenes.


The pairing of these photographers is justified not only in light of the friendship they share but also because of similarities in the way they have developed as photographers. That said, their work as photographers bears the marks of their distinct personalities.
