a prologue for a road trip
by Thanasis Lomef Zacharopoulos
About the Book
What is the story that I am trying to tell?
I found myself out of unrelated reasons in North America. What am I doing here?
Could I be I too critical or even biased as a European should be? Do I like what I see?
Is it easy to understand this land and its people and enclose that in those images?...
The first photo-journey from the 11x11 series. American Photographs, a prologue for a road trip.

Thanasis Lomef Zacharopoulos was born in the small town of Xanthi in north Greece. In 1990 a New Years Eve was initiated to the secrets of aperture and shutter speed, and the experimentation with photography started. Soon, discovered that both his grand father Nestor Lomef and his great uncle Dimitrios Zacharopoulos were taking photographs already in the 30s. Using that as an alibi started to spend his evenings in the (converted wardrobe) dark room. more on http://lomef.net/biography.html
