The new project from Andreas Theologitis is a study of the human body. His photographic work turns insistently around the exploration of particular aspects of the nude, where aesthetics are combined with an almost ideological dimension.

An inquisitive nature, Andreas started with solid studies in architecture and history of art. He subsequently went on to embrace the challenging art of photography. After 35 years of intimate involvement, his photography leads us today to new adventurous venues.

He maintains the optical relation between the curvaceous female body and the rectilinear form of modern buildings. His new work, “Abandoned Souls” seeks new forms of expression by exposing the models, out of his studio, in the inhospitable abandoned buildings. In this game of shadow and light, naked bodies through the ruins challenge the viewer and disturb his perception. He explores bare buildings that have kept only their original form and the remembering of their original use. Bodies as naked as the buildings, create a dialog and give a new perspective to an inhospitable space. Bodies, that through the debris, trying either to find the essence of the space, either to give a whole new perspective in the surrounding space.

Naked bodies wandering between the debris become one into these forgotten environment. Bodies that appropriate the abandoned space, they feel the abandonment and become one with it. Bodies and space not in contradiction but in a complete harmony. Beyond the images, these spaces expresses the abandonment of the human souls. The models of Andreas move in the shadows, in the debris of the buildings expressing their hidden feelings, shout their pain out loud into the world.

Today, Andreas – in a rather dark mood – captures the abandonment of our cities, of our souls into the silence of inhospitable spaces. In this body of work Andreas focuses on the meaning rather on the technical ability or the “beauty” of the human body. He shows us with honesty a different world beyond our comfortable perception choosing to disturb us. Andreas has participated in group and personal photography exhibitions in various locations and galleries of Athens, Piraeus, Brussels, London, Washington DC, New York City, Essex Vermont, Los Angeles, Minneapolis. His photography work received awards and honorable mentions in numerous international photography competitions. [Official Website]
