BIO

Yiannis Hadjiaslanis is a photographer based in Athens, Greece.

He predominantly works with landscapes and architecture, documenting the perpetuations of memory, the present and futures of lived environments, and their significance for those who create, interact and evolve with them.
Much of his work engages with questions surrounding the interpretation of the real and the perceived, bridging social documentary and art.

Hadjiaslanis is represented by Kalfayan Galleries, Athens-Thessaloniki.
He is a member of the 'Depression Era' collective.
