Photographs taken by Dimitris Soulas, who worked as a photojournalist in Munich in 1967-1974, will be on display for the first time in the Thessaloniki Museum of Photography. The exhibition will be open from January 12 until February 29 within the framework of the “Hellenes of the Diaspora” theme presentation.
Dimitris Soulas has created a blunt personal style and used his photos to comment on the society of his time focusing his camera on immigrants, the homeless and student peace demonstrators.
His black and whites fall under the humanistic spirit dominant in post-war photography, stresses the Thessaloniki Museum of Photography. Soulas was successful in all kinds of news reporting and had collaborated with the US news agency Associated Press as well as with most major German newspapers and magazines.
The exhibition, a co-production of Fotomuseum im Muenchner Stadtmuseum and the Thessaloniki Museum of Photography, is supported by Goethe Institute in Thessaloniki and is scheduled to travel to more European cities.
A bilingual edition in Greek and German signed by Ulrich Pohlmann, and Iraklis Papaioannou will also be available to the public.
