Eirini Lachana
Photographer

I was born in Athens, Greece, where I currently live.

I am an active member of the “Photographic Circle” group in Athens, participating in group photography exhibitions and my work has been published in some photography portals.

“I did it my way” is the title of the legendary Frank Sinatra’s signature song and my motto of life. Right or not, it’s my way of dealing with all things. From motherhood and personal relationships to decoration which is one of my passions since childhood and philosophy studies which is my most recent endeavor.

Even more so, my photographs show my way of thinking.

It’s a habit of mine to photograph while listening to music. Maybe because I feel music shows me “the way.”

Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.

    The images of American photographer Mary Ellen Mark are icons of documentary and humanistic photography. Focusing her camera on the socially disadvantaged and those on the fringes of society, she told the stories of her protagonists without prejudice. In the context of the emerging women’s movement in the USA during the 1960s and 70s, and as a freelance photographer at a time when print media was suffering its first major crisis, Mark fought her way to the forefront of female voices in photojournalism.

Hailing from diverse generations and backgrounds, these individuals converge to explore how flames have served as agents of change across time and space. (more…)
