Mitos on VOGUE


Michael Pappas | Mitos Project

PhotoVogue curates a pool of incredible image makers from around the world to create an international database of the most interesting voices in contemporary photography.

The mission of PhotoVogue has always been and will continue to be to champion talent, reach into historically excluded communities, improve visual literacy and shape a more just, ethical and inclusive visual world.

PhotoVogue aligns with Condé Nast’s goal of celebrating our differences; we are a collection of more than 6.000 individuals serving 37 brands in 26 languages, spanning 32 markets worldwide. Diversity is one of our greatest strengths and it is reflected in the diversity of our contributors from PhotoVogue.

PhotoVogue promotes Open Calls to scout talent in specific regions in the world or by theme. The Open Calls are evaluated by Condé Nast staff from all over the world and visual experts from the broader international visual community, thus guaranteeing a constant effort towards an inclusive and multifaceted perspective.

Building on the success of the PhotoVogue Festival, which has engaged the city of Milan for the past six years with events, talks, exhibitions, portfolio reviews, and many other initiatives, PhotoVogue continues to deliver the same caliber of events and experiences internationally to further the conversation around the promotion of creativity and diversity in image making.

In today’s world, where every brand is aiming to connect with their audience by delivering meaningful and relevant messages to communities that are actively engaged in issues of race, gender, equality, social justice and climate concerns, we aim to be the leader and game changer in giving a platform to the new creative voices and critical subject matter that will shape our future.

Mitos / The Thread of Greece

The Mitos Project is an ongoing ethnographic tribute that focuses on local costumes throughout Greece.
The thread takes on symbolic dimensions and seeks to highlight popular culture and folk art seen in a contemporary context.
The natural and cultural environment is the background that is associated with the “costumes” while the protagonists are always the people.

The peculiarity of this photographic work lies in its modern view, through the people who have kept their clothes as heirlooms and pass them on to the next generation
while using them on customary and festive occasions spontaneously, updating the mechanisms of tradition as a process.

A thread that interconnects us with our past!
