Unseen Views

Cyprus : Unseen Views

The Zampelas Art Museum and Cyprus Architects Association co-organise and present the architectural photography exhibition, entitled UNSEEN VIEWS, by the Architect Charis Solomou.

The exhibition will be opened on Friday, 26 January 2018, at 19.30 pm and will run until 28 February 2018.

Charis Solomou was born in Nicosia in 1982. He completed his studies at the School of Architecture of the University of Patra in 2006 where his interest and passion for architectural photography began to flourish at the same time. He established his own architectural studio in Nicosia in 2012, while in parallel participated at national and international architectural competitions with a considerable degree of success, winning numerous prizes and distinctions. Alongside practicing architecture, Charis teaches at the School of Architecture of Frederick University with an interest in research and teaching of computational design and fabrication, parametric design and advanced representation techniques focused on architectural design process.

With his studies in architecture, the practice in Cyprus and extensive traveling abroad, his work strives for alternative ways of describing the city, where concealed, unseen characteristics and particularities of the urban experience begin to become apparent through the photographic lens. His photographic portfolio focuses on well-known landmark buildings as well as thematic compositions of anonymous architecture. The light and shadows, texture, the geometrical characteristics of space and the morphological elements of buildings are the features that exist as an expression of the buildings unique identity and presence in the built environment of the city.

The exhibition entitled UNSEEN VIEWS presents views toward the urbanity of the contemporary city defined and presented through the photography lens of the Architect who searches, reveals and presents the panoramic, the bizarre, the different, the ‘alternative perspective’, the contradictory, all that escapes the everyday perception and view of reality through the naked eye. In the last instance, his work attempts to capture and present views that highlight the distinct character and particularities of the urban city and at the same time inspire and activate the reader-viewer toward a detachment from his everyday bland image of his city, and force him to tour, to discover and re-experience the city in a different sight.
