_EXPLORED - August 27th, 2015_
I finished this image a while ago but I'm only now presenting it publicly. In the meanwhile it has won a few important awards I'm proud of, like Gold medal and 2 Silver medals at PX3 2015 Prix de la Photographie Paris and FAPA 2015 Fine Art Photo Awards London, where it was category winner.
I'll be back to Chicago very soon as I've just launched my Chicago Workshop 2105, on October 17-18, the weekend of the famous festival Open House Chicago when more than 200 iconic buildings are open to visit and photograph. There are 10 spots available and a special price for the next 2 weeks. Details on my website blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/chicago-workshop-2015/

EXPLORED - March 7th, 2015
– Pennzoil Place, Houston, TX – Arch. Philip Johnson -
blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/equivalents-i-pennzoil-place...
Much more about how I create my images + a demo of my entire processing workflow at Athens Workshop March 28-29. Only a couple spots left. blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/athens-workshop-2015/
The start of a new series and maybe a new direction in my work, a direction not so minimalistic as before, with more complex subjects and relations among them. As always, my images are born from my experiences and I'm trying to tell my stories through them - through black, white and shades of gray, through lines and shapes.
See in my blog post above the whole story of the image, the tech side and a video about its creation.
I call this series Equivalents as an homage to Alfred Stieglitz, the “father”of fine art photography, the one who used this word for the first time in the beginning of 20th Century to create the first abstract photography series in history, when he shot more than 200 photographs of clouds deprived of any other context, aiming with this series to capture only the feeling in his images and to find a channel of communication with the viewer beyond known shapes or subjects. This is what I aim for too when creating (en)Visionography. To communicate with the viewer through symbols, and I create these symbols by using architectural shapes and shades of gray.
I shot this image on a trip I made to Houston, TX, together with my friend and wonderful photographer Mabry Campbell Check out his work, it's fantastic. Houston is an amazing city and Mabry knows everything about it so I got the best of what this city has to offer.
Shot with Formatt Hitech Filters ProStop ND filters 10+6 stops. Nowadays I'm using only Firecrest 16, which is THE filter to shoot long exposure.

My new image in the series Fluid Time is here. The fifth image in the series, and again showing two of the most representative and beautiful buildings of Chicago. I'm only posting the image today, together with a few details and I invite you to have a look on my book “From Basics to Fine Art – B&W Photography”, co-author Joel Tjintjelaar, to see many more details about how I created my images in this series and how I create my photography generally
In addition, because I've been asked many times to talk about my work in a video form, I decided to do it for this image and I put up a 30 minute video tutorial about the creation of this image that I will post over the next few days on my blog. I hope it will give some answers to the questions I've been asked about my work.

Brooklyn Bridge looking over Manhattan – you can see the 8 Spruce Street Frank Gehry building being built in the distance.
An older image that I haven't posted publicly yet (except for the book From Basics to Fine Art) and that I felt today that it was time for it to see the light of day. I do this with quite a few of my images. I keep them for myself for a while. It might seem a bit selfish to do this, but for me it's part of the creation of a photograph, and it might take years till an image is ready to be seen. Some will never be seen, probably. I don't know what I will do with an image when I finish it. Or rather, I consider an image finished the moment it is ready to leave me. It can stay on my hard disk finished for a long time before anyone else sees it. Why? It's part of the creation process, part of the “ritual”. Creating needs time, it needs to be lived, it needs to be for myself first and then for other eyes. I need to live with my images before I show them to the world. This image made me think about different things over time. It's a multiple metaphor for me. It makes me think about the force of dreams, but also about the force of constraints that rule our lives, it makes me think about different worlds that are coexisting but don't touch, about imagination that transcends any obstacle, and it makes me think about the world we live in, the networking world and its huge benefits but also its limitations. A whole world living in the inter-space between reality and science-fiction... we are here now that you are looking at this photo...
Shot in 2009 with a Sony Cyber-shot DCS-H5, a bridge camera I used in the past when traveling.
If you're wondering, my next image will come soon and it will be from Chicago, a new piece in my Fluid Time T/S blur series.
