Chronis Spanos is passionately seeking to explore surrounding living space using his camera to pave the way to fantasy and re-generation.
Urban constructions and monumental architecture are first on his list to be hacked and restructured in a way that he can elusively fantasize 2D spaces -in times dystopian- which challenge the impossible.
Influenced by Visual Arts, Cinematography and Architecture, Spanos studies form, light, and geometry, seeking to seize the moment and capture the emotion. He is inspired by the human dynamics of the spaces and he integrates it to the final outcome which, although seemingly de-humanized, incorporates the “anima” of the photographed place.
Spanos was affiliated with International Hellenic University of Thessaloniki, Greece, running the photography club from 2012 to 2017, whereas he has taught other photography workshops in Greece, such as at City College, and at the Institute of Cultural Vocational Education in Thessaloniki, Greece.
He has been collaborating as an architect photographer with international companies.
His work has been shown in solo shows and group exhibitions (Municipality of Kalamaria / Greece, Urban Rhythm-Art & Dance Festival, Thessaloniki / Greece, Art Gallery of Architectural Department of Municipality of Thessaloniki / Greece).
His solo show Re-GENESIS (photo-hacking the 5 Museums of Thessaloniki, Greece) has been exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki from July 2014 to April 2015. His solo exhibition XY@T was exhibited at Teloglion Foundation of Arts, A.U.Th. at November 2015.
His solo show Maraya ran at the Art Festival “Abu Dhabi Art 2015” and he took part at the group exhibition The Missing: Rebuilding the Past in New York, at the Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery in December 2015.
From 2015 he has also been engaged with food photography, working with companies, restaurants and chefs all across Greece.
