XXXII. Daimon Xanthopoulos

Daimon Xanthopoulos has taken some of my favorite documentary photos ever. He has a series called Secret Societies where he photographed a tribe in Africa. The images are so raw and show us something we wouldn’t have been able to see otherwise.

The film he shoots on is very nostalgic and warm and it makes you wonder about the past.

I wonder if these locations and series of photos are truly uniquely special. What I mean by that is if I were to go and photograph could I get those photos too? OR is it just the location that lends to great photos? Anywhere you look could be great for photos right?

Nonetheless, I love the photos and how they display motion and emotion in the tribe doing their everyday activities.
