Nikos Rakkas Photography : Common People (Like You)

“ will never live like common people, you will never do what common people do”, but that’s not the case for Nikos Rakkas’s Playmobiles in his photography series “Common People (Like You)”.  Those little plastic people are photographed in everyday life places, creating scenarios beyond reality and awakening childhood memories in favor of  an optical escape.


Nikos Rakkas studied Interior Design in Thessaloniki, worked on shop window dressing and as a photographer he has exhibited his work both in Greece and London. Taking as starting his personal collection of Playmobiles, he juxtaposes the scale of the toys in public places, creating a positive point of view and always having a soundtrack in mind.
