Tinos, we are coming to you! ‘Eye’ opens July 21st, till July 30th 2017: Gaitis Hall, Pyrgos – daily 11am to midnight 🥂 (& maybe even more, unless I get sunburnt et all!) This exhibition is inspired by my Cycladic roots & upbringing, all mellow fire. Friends hopping around the Aegean, come say hi! #ellietsatsoustudio #photography #et_marblestudy
Photographer Ellie Tsatsou draws inspiration from daily life: whether it is a beautiful sky, the moonlight shining through the fence or the view on a city, she manages to capture the beautiful side of everything with certain tranquillity.
According to herself, Tsatsou searches for “peace, kindness and simplicity” in her pictures. Her photos depict the way in which human beings stand in relation to nature and the way in which they are proportionated to each other.
Togetherness and wildness
Each photograph of Tsatsou can be viewed as part of a series. They form a composition together and reinforce each other. Despite that many of her pictures have been shot at different locations, they clearly form a collection.
Looking at her photos depicting Mother Nature, there is a certain sense of calmness and beauty. She captures details you can see by yourself, in a beautiful way and in soft colors. By doing this, Tsatsou combines both togetherness, as the images are appealing and intimate and wildness, since many depict the extent of the globe and make you realize you’re just a tiny object on this earth.
One of Tsatsou’s latest series is The Moon Series, displaying the moon at different moments of its cycle. The bigger purpose of this series is to make the viewer aware of the big and unknown universe. The individual pictures aren’t taken from one place: Tsatsou travelled all around the world to capture the moon to get beautiful distinct images that form the appealing series.
Looking at the photographs, you feel that Tsatsou invites you to stargaze and to be in the moment. She wants to make people “wonder and intuit”, and she definitely does.
