The Municipality of Chania and specifically the Tourism Office in collaboration with the Municipal Port Authority of Chania, organize an Underwater Photography Exhibition entitled: “OIKO SEA” at the beginning of the Lighthouse jetty in the Venetian Port of Chania, with works by Dimitris Anagnostou.

The exhibition, which includes eight works that have already been placed on water, promotes ecological awareness through the relationship between man and water. The collection of underwater surrealist photographs will offer a unique opportunity for art and photography enthusiasts, and the general public in general, to immerse themselves in a world of fantasy and surrealism captured through the combination of the lenses of an underwater and terrestrial camera. The artist’s inspiration comes from the natural beauty of both man and the seabed of Crete.

Then, after the works are covered with living sea microorganisms on the 8 images, they will be exhibited on the ground at a time and place to be determined, so that the public can see “how water gives birth to life”!

Dimitris Anagnostou is an experienced diver and has a passion for photography. Through this exhibition, for the first time he presents the female body in its natural form, in its birthplace: water. His use of creative techniques, such as light manipulation, depth of field and perspective, results in breathtaking images that challenge our perceptions of reality.

The artist himself notes: “As a man with a passion for diving, nature and capturing them in surrealistic photographs, I wanted to bring the viewer on a photographic journey through the water, observing their own natural experience through the eight images I created. Man is water, he comes from the sea bottom and in this photography exhibition he will have the opportunity to see it and experience it at the same time.
