Nasos Karabelas is a photographer and film director from Greece. His primary love is cinema. So far he produced two short-films and a feature film which took part in film festivals across his country and also abroad. Karabelas experimented with photography only in the last four years.
“I’m self taught”, he says, “and the kind of photography I’ve been dealing with is experimental photography. He captures what other people would turn their eyes from: street performers, old couples holding hands, hidden alleys or usual cracks in buildings. Anything you don’t care about could be a crosshairs for him.
The particularity Nasos Karabelas focuses on lately is the “possibilities of deformation of the human body”. His ghostly nudes, how I so expectedly labeled them are pieces of a beautiful nightmare, like flashes from a horror movie that turns on your inner demons. Cold, dark and erotic. Cozy and uncontrollable at the same time. If anxiety would have a face, this is how it’d look like.
“The alienated body and fuzzy features of the engravings of the matter reflects the ambiguous and unstable emotions and thoughts that constitute that subject”, explains Karabelas.
