"SANTORINI SIMPLICITY"

DIMITRA BRATIKA | PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

All of Santorini is an amalgamation of volcanic lava, epic landscapes and stark contrasts.


In order to know the "whole", Dimitra, loves to decompose it, to recompose it and praise its intelligent simplicity, both in the works of people and in the harmonious creations of nature.

DIMITRA BRATIKA

A resident of Santorini by choice, after a long time of traveling on the 5 continents, from where her involvement in photography began.
Lover of the Cyclades, lover of everything beautiful in the smallest, simple and humble ways.

"SANTORINI SIMPLICITY"

ΔΗΜΗΤΡΑ ΜΠΡΑΤΙΚΑ | ΕΚΘΕΣΗ ΦΩΤΟΓΡΑΦΙΑΣ

Το Όλον της Σαντορίνης είναι ένα Κράμα από ηφαιστιακή λάβα, επικά τοπία και έντονες αντιθέσεις.

 

Για να γνωρίσει το Όλον, η Δήμητρα, αγαπά να την αποσυνθέτει, να την επανασυνθέτει και να υμνεί την ευφυή απλότητά της, τόσο στα έργα των ανθρώπων, όσο και στα αρμονικά δημιουργήματα της φύσης.

 

ΔΗΜΗΤΡΑ ΜΠΡΑΤΙΚΑ

Κάτοικος Σαντορίνηςαπό επιλογή, μετά από μακρόχρονη ταξιδιωτική δράση στις 5 Ηπείρους, από όπου ξεκίνησε και η ενασχόλησή της με την Φωτογραφία.

Λάτρης των Κυκλάδων, λάτρης κάθε τι ωραίου στα πιο μικρά απλά και ταπεινά.
