Vangelis Kyris was born in Athens, Greece and his studies include courses in art history and fashion design both in Athens and New York. His multidimensional career started at the most popular magazine of the times (GYNAIKA) where he held the sought-after position of the fashion editor at a considerably early age. However, soon, out of an instinct his editor in chief, asked him to step behind the lens and try to be the photographer himself. An instinct that proved prophetic. Other magazines followed with the same request resulting in a long-term collaboration with titles such as Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Votre Beaut√© etc. Commercial work followed that led to international projects such as a campaign for Puma and a look book for the couture house of Nina Ricci. His extensive body of work not only includes fashion editorials but celebrity sittings as well, like the ones of Woody Allen, Jean Michel Jarre, Gisele B√ľndchen, Jerry Hall and others. As of 2000, in an effort to showcase his art photography, he has shown his work in two solo shows and several group ones resulting in having four pictures of his acquired by the Lacoste museum in Paris. In 2004 photographs of his and of other world renowned photographers were included in the Giorgio Armani book, ‘Facce da Sport/Faces of Sport’. The same material was presented in an art exhibition curated by the ARMANI/ARTE foundation. The very same pictures were part of the Armani Boutique window displays in New York

Vangelis Kyris, as a photographer, draws inspiration from the very fundamentals of human existence. Nature, religion and the perplexed emotional world of the human being, in various forms and geography, are the themes behind his images that are always underlined by his ever lasting obsession with beauty. Not the decorative and vacant mainstream kind but one that never lacks a sincere, rich and unsurpassed context. In whichever form of beauty there can be. (Source: http://www.vangeliskiris.gr/)
