The Art of creative photography - Platon Rivellis. On Art, Photography, Fashion and Aesthetics (Some thoughts on the occasion of a photography exhibition) Entrusting the curatorship of an exhibition dedicated to fashion photography to a person who knows and loves photography as an art, but who is unacquainted with fashion, can only raise numerous questions.

The Art of creative photography - Platon Rivellis

More so when, on several past occasions, the curator in question has repeatedly expressed his disapproval of the lighthearted expansion of the boundaries of art, within which both fashion as such and its photography are now congested. The juxtaposition of the two words that make up the title of the exhibition poses more questions than it aspires to answer. Nelly's. Elli (Greek: Έλλη Σουγιουλτζόγλου-Σεραϊδάρη) b.1899 - d.1998 (better known as Nelly's) was a Greek female photographer whose pictures of ancient Greek temples set against sea and sky backgrounds helped shaped the visual image of Greece in the Western mind (or, in a critical reading, the West's visual image of Greece in the Greek mind)[1] At some point she was referred to as "the Greek Leni Riefenstahl" because of her collaboration with the 4th of August Regime (1936-1941), of which she was one of its most prolific photographers.


As a Greek of the Diaspora, Nelly's view of Greece was nothing less than "idyllic", which matched the propaganda aims of the proto-fascist regime, led by General Ioannis Metaxas. In fact, her work helped illustrate the ideologeme of the racial continuity of the Greeks since Antiquity, which was at the core of Metaxas' agenda (the so-called "Third Hellenic Civilization" mostly, if not entirely fashioned after Nazi's Germany Third Reich).
