Athos – Colors of Faith | Stratos Kalafatis
Anti Art Gallery, Kastro Antiparos
10th – 30th July 2021
Within the context of Antiparos International Photo Festival 2021 events, our team is pleased to announce acclaimed photographer Stratos Kalafatis as Guest of Honour.
Bringing his visual of the Wild Side, Kalafatis will present photographs of his global reach essay, “Athos: Colors of Faith”. The artist, having visited Mt. Athos on a regular basis for the past several years, grasps and captures what is changing in the shades of faith, in that farrago of buildings, pictures, relics, manuscripts, absurd little secrets and major revelations.
Α unique artistic journey in this 1,000 year-old male-only religious community in Greece will be hosted at the Anti Art Gallery, Kastro Antiparos, from 10 to 30th July 2021.
