With an eye for detail and uncommon visuals, Alexis Vasilikos photography focuses on subjects taken out of context.

The Greek photographer makes each image seem like it is just a piece of a bigger puzzle that will make more sense once the larger image is seen; it is left up to the viewer to decipher what is going on. For example, in one image there is a woman in a nightgown who appears to be trying to sweep the ocean. Another image shows a dog lying on its side looking like it could be dead, but the fact that it's wearing a cheerful sweater creates a confusing mix of emotions within the viewer.

Alexis Vasilikos photography makes you work to try to understand what it is that you are seeing.
