Emily Graham (United Kingdom)
Emily is a British photographer, editor, producer, creative consultant and curator.

Christian Stemper (Austria)
Christian’s portfolio covers the field of advertising photography, architecture and landscape up to classic portrait photography and concept-heavy photo snapshots and series. However, his greatest passion is primarily to tell stories in a truly original way. Christian garnered international acclaim for his book ‘Lupimaris’, which documents the decline of the traditional fishing industry in the Cyclades, and with it the disappearance of the Greek caique and a way of life that is centuries old.
Hara Sklika (Greece)
Hara is an up and coming Greek photographer with a unique take on the world. After years of studying and researching creative photography, she has become a respected explorer of visual techniques, focussing on knowing the ordinary and the extraordinary and beyond, and expressing the quotidian as special. Her voluntary work at non-profit organizations crystallised her visual background, putting the emphasis on the human aspect . She then moved on to architecture, where – with an almost archaic attention to geometry – she captures architecture as a great human creation and achievement.
John Pack (United States)
John has directed the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in Paros since 1984, where he also teaches digital photography. A ferociously proud autodidact, John quickly became disillusioned with large school pedagogic methods and began his own bold educational journey. He has taught master classes in fine printing at two schools in Athens. He has exhibited widely and his work is held in museums and private collections worldwide, including: Museum of Man, San Diego, California, Museum of Northern Arizona, Wheelwright Museum of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Heard Museum, Phoenix, Arizona, Navajo Tribal Museum, Chase Art – New York City, New York Public Library, New York City, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., The Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, Delaware, Bibliothéque Nationale de France, Paris, Rivellis Collection, Athens, Greece. He has produced a book of photography in collaboration with British poet, Peter Abbs. His portfolio on the Navajo, with whom he lived in the late 70s, has become a classic.
David Frazer Wray (United Kingdom)
David is the Artistic Director of the Antiparos International Photo Festival.
