SPAP Photography

Kapopoulos Fine Arts Gallery in Elounda Mare in Crete, is pleased to present SPAP Photography’s (Spyros Papadatos) new solo photography exhibition. Opening in presence of the artist on July 28th.

Over his career, the photographer with the great talent, has depicted the female form with unprecedented vigor. Always true and constantly surrendered to the idea behind the bleak snapshot that the artist chooses to trap in time.

The female figure has always been a source of fascination and inspiration to artists. For Spyros Papadatos, the approach to the female form is natural and innocent, while simultaneously it is a challenge of breaking out of taboos and stereotypes.When he turnshis camera to women, the artist embraces the female body as a vital medium for storytelling, expressing identity and reflecting individual and collective experience.

Among the pieces of the exhibit there will be the nude: “Based Woman” which has received a distinction at the 10th International Salon-circuit of Art Photography "With Love to Women" - 2015.

“A Woman to Love II”SPAP Photography Exhibition was first presented at the Cultural Center Benetatou of one of the most prestigious municipalities of Athens – Psichiko-Filothei. Then following its success in Athens, it started a tour by travelling to Crete in March 2017 the biggest Island of Greece and was presented in the Municipal Art Gallery of Herakleion. Moreover, it has recently been presented in Barcelona-Catalonia in Spain.
