H.R.H. Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark has opened his first solo photographic exhibition at Melbourne's very own Hellenic Museum.
Titled, PHOS: Journey of Light the photographic exhibition captured by Prince Nikolaos explores the shifting light, movement and colour of the Greek landscape.
Prince Nikolaos has always been mesmerised by big, open spaces filled with natural light. His desire to capture these perfect plays between light and its surroundings is what has fuelled his passion for photography.
Greece's constantly shifting light is unique throughout all seasons, filled with movement and colour - even on an overcast day, there is light hidden behind the clouds just waiting to shine through. Desiring to reproduce exactly what he sees in any given moment, Prince Nikolaos never enhances the canvas of nature, which he captures in his photographs - leaving that up to nature's discretion and his deft use of his camera's aperture and speed.
Along with traditional methods, Prince Nikolaos has also printed his work on different materials, including panels of white marble from Thassos. The marble prints are particularly poignant because in these, Prince Nikolaos prints images of Greece onto Greek earth - its marble.
These breathtaking views of his homeland Greece are his love letters to the country that has always been in his heart and thoughts.
