Overview

From the stark black and white portrait of Barack Obama to the menacing magazine cover of Vladimir Putin, Platon excels at capturing the essence of his subjects. The Greek-born British photographer's work has appeared in publications including Time, The New Yorker, and Esquire, portraying world leaders as well as ordinary participants in social movements.

In this episode of Netflix's Emmy-Award nominated documentary series, Abstract: The Art of Design, filmmaker Scott Dadich explores the creative process and philosophy that drives the man behind the lens of some of the era's most iconic photos. Opening with Platon's photography of former Secretary of State Colin Powell and exploring his other projects, we are shown how the secret to capturing a powerful image extends far beyond the camera.

"I'm not really a photographer at all. The camera is nothing more than a tool. Communication, simplicity, shapes on a page. What's important is the story, the message, the feeling, the connection."
