The Catholic Chapels of Syros
Solo photography exhibition by Platon Rivellis…
The inhabitants of Syros, the vast majority of which belonged to the Catholic denomination up to the mid-19th century, used to build chapels in the countryside, which looked exactly like orthodox chapels on the outside, while their interior attested to their affiliation with the Western-type churches in dogma and aesthetics. Platon Rivellis photographed, between the years 2010 and 2012, the few chapels left standing, which date back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
Platon Rivellis was born in Athens in 1945. He has been a teacher of photography since 1981. He has edited a series of television shows on photography which aired on the Greek National Television. His works have been featured in both solo and group shows. His articles have been published in several Greek newspapers and magazines. He is the Director of the “Photohoros” publications. In 1988 he founded the “Photography Circle” society, of which he is the President. He is the author of technical and theoretical books, as well as photography albums.
