Oia, Santorini and Nikos Rigopoulos
This small village on the north coast of Santorini was one of the most enchanting and atmospheric places I have visited and it was here I came across photographer Nikos Rigopoulos. The area is traditionally known as a artists and photographers heaven with endless galleries selling paintings, prints, photographs and collages of the recognisable white and blue town. Yet the work of Rigopoulos stood out as a fresh approach to this beautiful subject - his work encaptures the unique, tranquil atmosphere of the small village whilst presenting it with an area of mystery and intrigue. Unlike the majority of work from photographers here, his work is, in majority, black and white. His work can be searched for on the Internet.
