Dinos Christianopoulos began to put his small collection together in 1949. By the time the Little
Gallery «Diagonios» opened in 1974, he had assembled photographs by the earlier Thessaloniki
photographers i(Iordanidis, Lykidis) and by his own friends (Stylianou). When the «Diagonios»
Gallery opened, he became acquainted with many of the younger art photographers - most of them
from Thessaloniki - and was able to expand his collection considerably. Today, it consists of some 110
prints, most of them by photographers from Thessaloniki, in whose work the traditional approach to
the human figure and the landscape predominates.
The presentation of part of this collection during the Photosynkyria is the result of Christianopoulos'
appreciation of the efforts being made by Aris Georgiou and of pleasure in the revival of his work
after a year of silence.
The exhibition includes 34 photographs coming from the following photographers.
