Prod Antzoulis (1991) is a Cypriot born photographer and creative director raised in Dubai. With an aesthetic firmly rooted in the Middle East, Prod captures the on-ground lifestyle and consumer culture while attempting to narrate his journey, mapping reference points which allow him to decipher his cross-cultural identity. His work reflects an honest and unedited series of moments revealing the eccentricities and particularities of places and people. By nurturing a sense of comfort and familiarity, Prod seeks to capture the veiled rawness that lies within his subject’s frame and is committed to embody the sense of nostalgia with which he navigates reality.
Prod has been shooting exclusively on analogue, turning his passion for photography into a profession after he was commissioned to shoot the final collection of an Omani Central Saint Martins graduate in 2015. With a portfolio that spans the region, Prod has worked with brands such as Gucci, Saint Laurent, Red Valentino, Okhtein and Amina Muaddi. Most recently, he shot GQ Middle East covers, including Latin pop-star Maluma, Mustafa the poet as well as the ‘Self Isolation’ issue chronicling tales that documented interactions between himself and eight Arab talents scattered across the globe, shot over Zoom during quarantine. He has also shot covers for Elle Arabia, Jamalouki, and Emirates Woman.
Prod’s work has been featured in Vogue Italia, GQ, Schon! and Oyster Magazine, as well as regional publications such as Vogue Arabia, CNN Arabic, Mille World, GQ Middle East, and Emirates Woman.
