I am extremely honored to have been selected as a Juror's Pick for the Magnum Photography Awards 2016. Here is what Jim Casper, LensCulture's editor-in-chief and the juror who selected me, had to say about my work:

"Dimitri Mellos makes remarkable photographs that capture moments of transcendence, delight, confusion, humor, solitude, despair " sometimes all in the same frame. These densely packed images are teeming with mundane ordinary moments, unlikely juxtapositions, the interplay of shadows, silhouettes, and shafts of slanting urban light. His artful eye seems hyper-naturally tuned-in to saturated colors and morphing shapes; one can feel both his sense of whimsy and compassion as he takes us along his city streets."
