"Pygmalion Karatzas creates compelling fine art photographs that would appeal to architects and photography collectors alike. His graphic black and white images made with long exposures are sumptuous renditions of details, as well as whole buildings and vistas. His attention to composition reveal his experience as both architect and photographer."
- Julie Grahame, Editor, Curator
“Pygmalion's artistic expression is what we seek at Stark-Magazine as we are obsessed with promoting the Intelligent Eye in photography. This element is reflected in Pygmalion's vision and creativity -- we recognize the moment the artist captures something unique or unusual as he engages the subject. Not only evident in his architectural work, but we see this in his other works as I am reminded of "spanish steps - in rome" - the artist sees something in the moment and has the awareness to capture.”
– Jason Lowry, Publisher Stark Magazine
“This is stunning imagery and certainly tests the viewer to look at architecture in a more dynamic way. Your use of long exposures and how you play with perspective are innovative and your technical ability is excellent. I particularly like image ‘Weill Cornell’ and how it causes me to think differently about this space in Qatar in almost a fictional way. Also images ‘MyZeil’ and ‘Usher Hall extension’ really work in the way you confound your viewer with the shift in perspective. Overall you surely have a distinct style and command of your aesthetics and technique, excellent work!”
