Petros Poulopoulos

1) Name: Petros Poulopoulos


2) Lives in: Koukaki, Athens


3) Where are you from?: I grew up in Peiraus and then moved to Glyfada.


4) What is your job?  I am a freelance photographer mostly working on street photography. I also work in commissioned photography and videography.
Lynn asked how I became a photographer, and it is a funny story…One night while I was in my second year of college studies to become a microbiologist assistant, I watched a film called “Kids”  directed by Larry Clark.  At the end of the film, I watch a summary of the videotape including a part talking to the director about how he became a photographer despite the fact he had no training in photography and at the time, he also had a drug addiction. That night I had this crazy idea to become a photographer myself. I remember thinking,  “If he could do it  why can’t I?”  The same night I found an old analog camera that belonged to my brother. And ever since that day I have been shooting photography almost non stop… 🙂


5) Tell us your first three jobs (ever!): Doing my practice at a hospital (I’m trained as a microbiologist), then I worked in real estate, and now photography.


6) Zodiac Sign?: Cancer


7) What do you love about Greece?  The climate in Greece is ideal for me. I love the sun. I remember I once met an Irish tourist at Acropolis and  asked him “Why do you think people visit Greece?” He said, ” It’s the sun, not the history!” I think he’s right…

The exhibit is at Barrett. a gallery/bar located in the Psirri area of Athens. The show will last until Christmas, and Barrett is open from day to night every day. Here is a link for the show!
