Born in Greece, Spyros Hound initially studied construction management before realising that art was the highway for him to express himself—in particular, photography. “I started practising on the streets, capturing natural scenes and landscapes and shooting portraits of friends and people I met on the way,” Hound says. “I started off as self-taught through everyday practice, and eventually became really interested in music photography, covering live concerts and later becoming a photographer for MTV network in Greece.”
Hound went on to win first place at the 2014 Macallan’s Photography Competition, and held a solo black and white photography exhibition, entitled ‘Static Moves’ in July 2019 at the Serafeio Exhibition Hall of the Municipality of Athens. In March 2022, he decided to go to Ukraine to cover the Russian invasion and document the humanitarian aid in Kiev.
