For the second consecutive year, Kourd Gallery participates in ΜΙΑ Fair, the international contemporary Art Fair dedicated to photography that takes place in Milan. With the ambiguous title “The Monk”, which in Greek can also refer to a hat-stand, the represented artist, Pagratis Pagratidis, implies the human presence in his cinematographic-like shots of natural or urban context. The photographer intrigues subconsciously the viewer to explore what lies beneath the words and the objects.
Born in Kavala, Greece in 1965, Pagratis Pagratidis began his career as a musician and a sound engineer. Since 2000, he has immersed himself in photography and, since 2009, he has shown his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has also been distinguished in various international competitions and his works can be found in Greek and international private collections. In 2015, he launched his first e-book “Shortly before dawn”.
