Friends and Photography: Kostas Agoris

by Nandia Foteini Vlachou


Among the leaves the small birds sing;

The crow of the cock commands awaking:

In solitude, for company.

(W. H. Auden, VII. Lauds, from Horae Canonicae)

[Kostas Agoris lives in Ioannina, where he works for the local newspaper as the managing editor. He took this picture where the orange wings of the butterfly clash beautifully with the lilac, in his village where he spends his weekends. He’s a loyal childhood friend and a marathon runner with a soft spot for Madonna]
