of Stylianos Papardelas
I was born in Larisa and grew up in Crete. I started photography in 2006 when I joined the photographic society of the University of Crete. Since 2009, I traveled to more than 40 countries around the globe, working at my personal project “In touch”. In 2014, I was awarded by the president of Greece for my work and gave my first TEDx talk called “Surpassing comfort zone”. In 2015, I started a new project called “Out of touch”.
My personal work has been published in David Gibson’s book “100 great street photographs”
I have been published on several international and Greece media such as Al Jazeera, Huffington Post, NPR, Spiegel online, IRIN, Vice, National Geographic, The Press Project, Kathimerini, To Vima. I also collaborated with a number of international organizations and NGOs (ICRC, United Nations and Barrestown) on numerous projects, exhibitions, and workshops around the world.
I have presented several exhibitions around the world. Between them, my work has been exhibited in the head courters of the United Nations and the Greek and the European Parliament
I am about to publish my first book “Duality“
