Dimitri Papadimitriou was born in Germany to Greek parents. His childhood was spent moving between Germany and Greece. .At the age of 12 his family moved to the United States.

Dimitri's passion for photography began in high-school. ..After studying a number of subjects at college, including engineering, he returned to his original love, making photography both a way of life and a primary mode of expression. ..He pursued his calling at the Rochester Institute of Technology School of Photographic Arts & Sciences (RIT), in a city he refers to alternately as " the imaging Mecca" and the "home of Kodak".

His formal education at RIT allowed him to cultivate his particular combination of technical virtuosity and artistic sensibility. ..His work is characterized by elegant compositions with high resolution and rich tonal range. ..This unique combination has made Dimitri particularly valuable as a technical consultant for Kodak and his pictures have been used in their marketing campaigns.

For Dimitri, the reason he does photography is that it provides "an excuse to learn about everything". ..As he explains, " the more you understand something, the easier it becomes to convey its essence in a photograph. ..This essence is what lasts the test of time."

Dimitri calls himself a " curious photo-generalist" and even though he concentrates on architecture, his work does not stop there. ..He claims that our perception of architecture begins with the site or landscape (exteriors). ..As we approach the building and go through it, it evolves into an interior. ..The interior can be a large still life or small vignettes that catch our attention. .Mostly it reflects the styles and taste of its owner or resident... With the dweller in the photograph, the " portrait" becomes complete.
