Dinos Diamantopoulos left us today. One of the best Greek fashion photographers, and also famous for his glamorous portraits, especially in black & white, he defined Greek fashion photography for many years. Every Greek star longed to be photographed by him, confident that they would be at their most beautiful and glamorous when the final result was published.
I liked his work a lot, although I preferred his fashion photographs to his portrait work. The insecurity of the star that was over re-touched always troubled me enough to see through the vain poses and empty looks into the abyss of the subject's soul. Maybe Dinos did the same, and that is why he tried his very best to make them look perfect. Too perfect.
His website with lots of photographs is very good and you can also see his biography there. He will be missed.
