Professional photographer since over twenty years, Steve J. Drakos creates avant-garde visions through the emotional tension of the image, daring experimentations and angles balanced by elegance, stylistic research, light control, mastery of color techniques in postproduction and finally precise printing choices.
He prefers subjects that he calls the "high style obsessions" and "the states of the mind" of the Western world: a very rich tradition of culture constantly to be reinterpreted in the contemporary spirit and taste.
The subjects are portrayed under strict style codes, in real action, provoked by the photographer like shots from a movie where also the pictures of the single landscapes and buildings are parts of scenes in eternal shooting.
After living in continuous movement between several European cities, working on commission for many clients worldwide and having his photos published in over fourty countries, he is now based in Prague and in Athens.
