about Andy Sotiriou
Londres (Reino Unido), 1960
The London photographer Andy Sotiriou found in photography the perfect mean of expression to combine his interest in art and science. Though he graduated in Physics, he soon realised that his real vocation was art. His first steps as an artist started with pictures of great musicians for the discographic companies, to make album covers and publicity material. In the 80's he began to travel throughout Europe and the United States, which allowed him to encourage his archive of commercial and travel images. In the 90's he moved to Spain where he lives between Murcia and Madrid. Today, he works on his personal projects making printings and exhibitions. He counts on several solo and collective exhibitions.
about the artist's works
Photographer Andy Sotiriou, with a trajectory of more than 20 years, manages to capture through his images the magic of spaces and landscapes. Through two procedures, the artist manages to show the essence and soul of each place he travels. On the one hand, it reproduces what it sees as accurately as possible. On the other, he uses the camera, not as a witness to reality, but to be able to combine and manipulate his images and create a conceptual work. In his statement, the artist believes that photographs can be made through a process, not just take them. Also, series like "Snowscapes" or "Waterscapes" are perfect examples of the artist's work, in which every moment becomes a creation.
