Photoshoot of The Greek Biologist Manolis Dermitzakis

Within the ENCODE, Mr. Dermitzakis and his colleagues from around the world, found that these specific genes are just the “verbs” of a complex syntax, that the so-called “useless” DNA needs in order to be activated so as to perform a function.

He was very pleasant relaxed cooperative due to the photo-shoot. After some tests in the interiors of the biomedical research academy of Athens, I decide to make the main shots outdoors with the building of BRFAA – Biomedical Research Foundation Academy of Athens  on the background. In this way I wanted to make a combination of the straight lines represent the  strictness  of science visualised as a form in contrast with the pleasant and cool character of Dr Manolis Dermitzakis. The published portraits follows…
