My name is Vivi Kalomiri.
I was born and raised in Athens, Greece, in 1977.
As long as I remember my childhood I painted and created fantastic worlds of my imagination.
As a teenager I I bought my first camera and started shooting – this was a new way to express myself and get in touch with my deepest thoughts and dreams.
After finishing school I took courses in Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and then returned to Athens and studied photography in Leica Academy.
I have worked as a senior account manager in a major photographic agency in Athens, our clients are advertising companies, publications,designers etc. I sale photos and control photographic rights for many kinds of usages.I have found great joy there, with hundreds of images passing through my eyes every day.
Today I ’m working as a professional wedding photographer, owning also my own studio of fine art photography.
As years go by, I experiment different kinds of photographic expressions.
My best thing is to combine street photography and landscapes or urban scenes, so I find great pleasure in shooting people during fests and ceremonies, in their own villages or cities.
I also love music, dancing, walking for hours in the city, traveling around the world (a little bit afraid of airplanes though).I love traveling all around beautiful Greece by train during winter – and by ship to all our dreamy islands during summer.
Recently I became member of the random art movement , which I think expresses my personal artwork.
Am I a randomist? Life will show…
