Enduring City (2023) is a personal journey through the streets of Athens by photographer John Vlahakis.  A four year personal project that reveals the modern and ancient day to day existence of today’s Athenians.  The collective cohesion of his black and white street photography lend themselves to capturing an Athens that highlights the city’s gifts to the past, and to its modern vibrancy as one of the great cities of the world.  Past and present meet to create a visual social documentary.

Newark Liberty International new $2.7B Terminal A opens with art work from 23 artists based in New Jersey.  

A little over a year ago the New Jersey State Council on the Arts put a call out to artists inviting them to submit art work representative of the state for display in Newark Liberty International Airport’s new Terminal A.  Painters, Photographers, Sculptors, and Mixed Media artists were invited to submit their works.  Artists that were accepted into this project had to sign an NDA.  The management of Newark Liberty International Airport selected 23 artists to represent the state within the new terminal.  Three photographers were selected to represent northern, central, and southern New Jersey.  I was fortunate to be selected to represent southern New Jersey.  Two of my images are now on display at the new Terminal A at the airport.  It is an incredible honor to have my work included in this exceptional public space.
