Hello

Βλέπω and κοιτάζω are synonymes, they both mean "see, look". In some phrases they can be used interchangeably.

ex: Κοιτάζω τις φωτογραφίες. / Βλέπω τις φωτογραφίες. = I look at the photographs.

The difference between them is that βλέπω means "I realise the presence of an object with my eyes", whereas κοιτάζω means  "I objerve, I pay attention to something."

ex:

Τι βλέπεις στην εικόνα; = What do you see in the picture?

Τι κοιτάζεις με τόσο ενδιαφέρον; = What are you looking at with so much interest?

Γυρεύω is different, it means "search for, seek" (informal)

ex:

Τι γυρεύεις; = What are you looking for?

Γυρεύω τα γυαλιά μου. = I am looking for my glasses.
