Yannis Zindrilis was born in the city of Ioannina, Greece in 1982. He graduated from the Topography Department and the Department of Photography and Audiovisual Arts of the Technological Educational Institute of Athens. Furthermore has attended seminars in Athens School of Fine Arts (“Theory Issues of visual arts and photography” – “On Landscape: Images, Emotions, Politics”).
He has collaborated with newspapers and magazines. The series “Vague Landscapes” was exhibited to Athens Photo Festival in 2016 and the series “No Name Cities” was exhibited to Art Unexpected – Black and White Festival: Exploring inner spaces in 2017. He lives and works in Athens as a freelance photographer.
The series «Vague Landscapes» is a photographic representation of the suburban landscape and the countryside, based on the variability and the uncertainty that surrounds these geographical locations. The condition of transition characterizes a place which is remotely located from the urban and strictly shaped areas and it comes out in the pictures from the elimination of iconographic elements that contribute to obvious denotations and lead to stereotypical readings.
At the same time, these photographs attempt to highlight the different elements that shape the landscape. Nowadays, the random human intervention is a symptom that emerges from the transition and reconstruction of the blurred and constantly reconfigured anthropological, social and personal meanings.
