Εxcept Fire

The first solo exhibition of Michael Varthakouris consists of a selection of printed digital photographs, audiovisual material in the form of installations and illustrations. Michael focuses on the woman and the beauty of the female body that coexists with the sea, on the shores of the Aegean. He captures in a set of exhibits the art of photography and how their creation unfolds. Photography started as a hobby for the artist. After a lot of experimentation, inner search and integration into the commercial space, Michael rejected photography as a professional orientation. For him, photography was more than an obligation, it was love. As love is the sea, love is the woman. Michael photographs based on emotions what he likes, what attracts him and makes him think.
