Asterope Publications is a small, independent publishing company based in Athens, Greece. It was created in 2015 by Miltos Kourmpoglou, a photographer himself, who decided to share his passion for photography and the love for his homeland Greece by publishing his own photography books. The vision of Asterope Publications is to produce innovative and creative photography books that will convey to every reader the true essence of Greece and the Greek lifestyle. Our aspiration is to reach a variety of readers, local and international, who all share a common taste: Love for Greece, photography and art. For that purpose, we collaborate with talented partners, authors and artists, who share common values and vision with us. For us, publishing a book is a unique intellectual experience.
Our purpose is to transform innovative, challenging and intriguing ideas into books.
Innovation and creativity
We do not aim at simply publishing books with photos. A photography book is a complex project, it has form, narrative and should definitely 'tell a story'. For us, a photography book is the medium, which can express high, and sometimes abstract, artistic ideals.
Passion for Excellence
We pursue excellence in all aspects of publishing and, most importantly, we enjoy in what we are doing.
We select and work with partners, who share common vision with us and, as a team, we all strive to make our dreams come true.
