PHO­TO­GRA­PHER

Di ori­gi­ne ita­lo gre­ca, Stra­tis Kas la­vo­ra at­tra­ver­so lin­guag­gi con­sa­pe­vol­men­te con­trad­di­to­ri: da un la­to ispi­ran­do­si al­la tra­di­zio­ne dei gran­di mae­stri del­la fo­to­gra­fia, dall’al­tro aman­do spe­ri­men­ta­re la spon­ta­nei­tà del mon­do di­gi­ta­le. I suoi ri­trat­ti so­no spec­chi fe­de­li del­la real­tà in­ter­pre­ta­ti dall’uso con­sa­pe­vo­le del­le lu­ci e del­le pro­spet­ti­ve. Stra­tis Kas ama di­re che «er­ra­re può es­se­re la più no­bi­le del­le ar­ti e la vi­sio­ne del­la sto­ria vin­ce­rà sem­pre in­se­gnan­do­ci ad an­da­re ol­tre l’ov­vio».

Stra­tis Kas, who co­mes from an Ita­lian-Greek back­ground, works wi­th vi­sual lan­gua­ges that are con­sciou­sly con­tra­dic­to­ry, ta­king in­spi­ra­tion from the great ma­sters of pho­to­gra­phy whi­le still ex­pe­ri­men­ting wi­th the spon­ta­nei­ty of the di­gi­tal world. His por­trai­ts are fai­th­ful re­pre­sen­ta­tions of rea­li­ty via a kno­wing use of light and per­spec­ti­ve. Stra­tis Kas lo­ves to say “fai­lu­re is no­bler than art, and will win over vi­sion al­ways, tea­ching us to al­ways go fur­ther than the ob­vious.”
