I attended Haris Kakarouhas’ Insight workshop in 2017. I’d happened to see some photographs of his and had fallen in love with them. I became almost obsessed with hearing the man who had taken those wonderful pictures talk about the process of photography. I wanted to find out more about how he takes photographs and, of course, to hear what he had to say about my own work. The reason I took the workshop was purely and simply my admiration for his photographs. I joined it without knowing anything about its structure...

For me, the workshop was an opportunity for introspection and self-improvement. It gave me the chance to discover well-hidden secrets about myself and to come face-to-face with them and with what scared me about them. And it helped me develop my skills in terms of photography. I succeeded in looking with a different eye – the eye of the soul – at images by other photographers, and to render my inner world in my own photographs. As a good mentor, Haris made the whole process easier (as easy as it could have been),...

I first encountered Haris Kakarouhas through his photographs at an exhibition of his work. It was a set of photographs that was more than a project comprising photo stories, forms and content. I felt that something was happening there without being able to explain it. But with the passage of time, as things turned out, I would have the chance to discover everything that was inexplicable. Doing the workshop together with Haris, I let go of all the theories that I’d been carrying around in my head for so many years....

It is not easy to describe Haris Kakarouhas’ photography workshop. I recently read a book by the traveller Henri Michaux, in which one phrase jumped out at me: “It is as if Westerners have a seed in their eye, bigger or smaller depending on the person. This seed never becomes sight. It is the mark of intellectualism, of intelligence.” When the workshop had finished, I realised that it is this seed that Kakarouhas is interested in, that he wants to eliminate, to change: our tendency to overthink things. So that...

“Art is directly intertwined with its creator. When we talk about the purity and authenticity of a work, that is who we are thinking about. Through Haris’ workshop course, I became aware of aspects of myself that are expressed through my pictures. As a result, I have achieved a deeper understanding of my photographic work, which has itself also developed naturally through a series of unforced changes that took place within me during the course.”

This is a workshop about self-knowledge before it is about photography. To anyone who wants it to, it will reveal everything that is necessary for us to learn what we have inside us. It is a good way of starting to find out who we are. Or it was for me, at least. I learned what moves me and why, what attracts me and what repels me, and what provokes in me fear, dislike and love. Because we photograph what we are, this entire process led me to a fundamental redefinition of my relationship...

“My experience in the workshop awakened a need in me to dive deep inside myself. To touch my soul, my existence, my being. And for my pictures to emerge from it. My own eyes, my own power, my own energy, filling the gaps in my existence and creating photographs that would touch and embrace my soul and my being, and those of others.”
