Savvas Christou’s photographic style is influenced by the personality traits of the models. He encourages the models to be free and express themselves in their own artistic way in front of his lenses creating an atmosphere that captures that personal model/ photographer interaction on camera being translated in an image.
He loves natural light, outdoor locations and has a cinematic feel in his work as if each photo is part of a movie frame or scene. He also likes dramatic lighting exploring industrial or wrecked/ abandoned locations capturing the model’s expressions in the right moment to convey that contrasting instant story of beauty and remoteness. For him every natural prop is essential and he particularly pays attention to facial or body lines following the exact semiotics in the images.
