From 11th July, Sydney photographer Tom Evangelidis, from Black Eye Gallery, will kick-off the new exhibition wall at Tribe Lifestyle Chatswood Chase with a selection of St Petersburg stills from his publication Façade.
Façade documents an eclectic mix of architectural eras, from the gothic beauty of the 13th century to the ornate decadence of the 18th century, and the austere classicism of the communist era in the 20th century. Evangelidis selected four large format stills (158 X 128cm) of the beautiful architecture of St Petersburg for his exhibition at Tribe, which will adorn the salon’s art wall from 11th July to 15th August and will be available for sale during the period of the exhibition.
More about the artist – Tom Evangelidis grew up along the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia. He made his debut as a fashion photographer in London in the early 1990s before returning to Sydney to work in the television and theatre industries. Twelve years ago, Evangelidis shifted his focus to interior design and lifestyle photography, simultaneously travelling the world to pursue his passion casino online for architecture. The result was three exhibitions in Sydney titled Prague Architectural Portraits (1999), Casa Particular (2003) and Lost in Hanoi (2004), which document the diversity of architectural styles in the Czech Republic, Cuba and Vietnam.
Façade is the culmination of all three exhibitions plus four additional photographic journeys through Russia, Romania, Turkey and Bulgaria, which were taken over a 10-year period. Critics have praised Evangelidis for his “technical brilliance and subtle eye” and his “entrancing scale, colour and texture”. His evolution as a photographer is accented by his innate appreciation for beauty, particularly beauty unveiled in unexpected locations. Evangelidis’ unique understanding of people, objects, antiques, music, faces and places, collectively lend an air of ‘painterly’ sophistication to his work. Evangelidis is currently based in Sydney, where he is represented by Black Eye Gallery.
