Group exhibition at The Curated Fridge in Boston

One of the coolest exhibitions that I am taking part is at “The Curated Fridge“, in Boston! Yes, exactly, the exhibition is in a kitchen, on a fridge in Boston! The idea is very simple: Every 3 months there is an open call with a certain theme and a guest curator selects the best pictures and “hangs” them on the fridge. The idea of the curated fridge was of Yorgos Efthymiadis in an attempt to celebrate fine art photography and connect photographers from around the world. I am taking part at the Spring 2022 Show themed “Interiors” and curated by …

Mundus at Open Book Day: ‘Inanimate dialogues / Let the things speak’ in Zoetrope – Athens

On the 16th of March 2022, Mundus was presented among 6 other photobooks, texts and materials in a very free and unique way in Zoetrope space, in Kypseli, Athens at the Open Day Book selection ‘Inanimate dialogues / Let the things speak’ by Benni Ciappini. Objects, materials, ruins, inanimate things have the power to communicate a story, both through their physical presence and characteristics, and their representation in art. They might not be able to speak the way we do, but they hide a power of communication and influence within themselves. Not in a human way, but in their own …

A review of MUNDUS by Ermis Kasapis

Ermis Kasapis has written a very insightful review of my book “MUNDUS” at the website “Τετράδια”, a site completely focused on the art of photography. You may read the review (in greek) here:

The Audio Work of Mundus

During all these years that I have been working at the underground worksites of Thessaloniki, I was collecting distant, unearthly or at times deafening sounds from this world which was in constant flux. Finally, the dream I had of working with these sounds came true thanks to the collaboration of producer Anastasios Kokkinidis. Kokkinidis used the photos of the book as an inspiration and the soundscapes that I had recorded on field as the raw material to make the following two acousmatic compositions:   MUNDUS: How does it resonate? – Part One (11:32) MUNDUS: How does it resonate? – Part …
