On his work on Architectural Photography and Art, Chronis Spanos is passionately seeking to explore surrounding living space using his camera to pave the way to fantasy and re-generation.
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 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.
On his work on Food Photography, the photographer Chronis Spanos addresses formal and ideological issues such as light and texture within the theme of food. His approach to his subject is architectural in that, he essentializes form abstracting it to its simplest shape using light and shade.
He is collaborating with several chefs, restaurants and food companies, both within Greece and abroad, pushing always forward, exploring new ways.. His work has been shown in exhibitions to Greece, Abu Dhabi and New York with the latest one being among other food photographers in the exhibition “Food Fever” at the Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery in Manhattan in the last quarter of 2019.
