Petros Kotzabasis was born and bred in Komotini, a small town in northern Greece, where he has chosen to live. He has been involved with photography since 1985 with a 10-year-interval. He started teaching fine-art photography in 2007 at the student cultural society of Democritus University of Thrace. He is currently teaching in the photographic societies of Komotini, Xanthi and Kavala and has also been conducting seminars on fine-art photography and visual perception in photographic groups and societies all over Greece. In 2014 his first photographic album, entitled “Obsessions”, was published

 

“My field of reference is “the street”; I neither seek extraordinary events, nor do I travel around in quest of a subject to photograph... ...I seek nothing but the moment when narration becomes superfluous, with a view to creating a new universe where everything will be evident yet something will be left unrevealed, not with symbols but with hints... ...The “project” I am working upon is a single one and it will be over once my life cycle is over, hoping that my every photo gets across to the viewer the intensity I felt when I raised my camera, opening for him small cracks in the solid wall of reality, allowing him to see beyond and over reality and its laws...”
