Yiorgis Yerolymbos

Yiorgis Yerolymbos focuses on architecture, corporate and landscape photography. He is especially interested in human altered and industrial landscapes since 1995. For more than two decades, he approaches each project, commissioned or self initiated by attempting to strike a delicate, yet precise balance between content and form as he strongly believes that “photography must be consistent both with the world, which is the basis of science, and with itself, which is the basis of art”. He works at any given site, environment or country that demands his attention.

He uses a number of different techniques working with medium format digital backs and cameras of the highest quality in order to insure results that satisfy any customer needs. Over the years he managed to master his craft and put together a team of highly qualified and dedicated professionals in the fields of graphic design, printing and publishing that enables him to undertake projects that go beyond photographic services and extend as far as creating corporate annual reports, company brochures and advertising publications.

RENZO PIANO

Renzo Piano was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1937 to a family of builders. He graduated Milan Polytechnic in 1964 and began to work with experimental light-weight structures and basic shelters. In 1971, he founded the Piano & Rogers studio and, together with Richard Rogers, won the competition for the Centre Pompidou in Paris. From the early 1970s to the 1990s, Piano collaborated with engineer Peter Rice, founding Atelier Piano & Rice in 1977. In 1981, he established the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, with offices today in Genoa, Paris and New York. Renzo Piano has been awarded the highest honors in architecture, including; the Pritzker Prize; RIBA Royal Gold Medal; Medaille d’Or, UIA; Erasmus Prize; and most recently, the Gold Medal of the AIA.
