I am Daimon Xanthopoulos, a Dutch-born creative force specializing in photography and filmmaking. My career took flight in 2000 while still pursuing art school, leading me on a path to illuminate the human narrative through my projects and documentaries. Recognition for my work has come in the form of international awards, including a special prize at the Prix Italia, the Zilveren Camera Awards and a TEGEL Storimans Award.
As an artist, my work has spanned from the Benaki Museum in Athens to Fotofestival Noorderlicht, Perpignan and TiblisiFest, with contributions to the AAF Artfair in Amsterdam, Christies Actions and the Africa Art Festival in Chicago. Beyond the visual, I’ve shared my experiences through lectures and workshops, engaging with institutions across the globe.
Branching into film production, I co-founded SALIENT FILM to create independent documentaries that evoke emotion, inspire action, and transcend language barriers. Our collaborations extend to NGOs, UN organizations, and multinational corporations to tell human-centric narratives. My latest films where included in IDFA’s Catalog.
Currently, my focus lies in ‘Mystic Echoes’, a large European Photo-Art project exploring locations and stories connected to myths and traditional beliefs. I aim to encapsulate these magical echoes of a bygone era through my photographic artwork, a selection of which has been featured in National Geographic magazine, at Noorderlicht Gallery and Agora Gallery New York, and during Wonderland and the Museum Night in Amsterdam. Through this project, my ambition is to continue carving my path in the realm of artistic photography.
