Antonis Theodoridis is an Athens-based artist, working in the medium of Photography. He is a Fulbright Foundation scholar and holds a Photography MFA degree from the University of Hartford, USA. His practice is a mixture of traditional analogue photography along with digital processes, research, collage, and printing. Using large-format view cameras, he depicts places and people producing sharp in detail and rich in colour pigment prints. Following a road trip across the Western States in 2014, his work Newspaper from the American West was published in Greece by Agra Publications. Through his studio work, he critically examines how archival images reflect and shape western culture, emphasising the notions of cultural bias and the limits of historical knowledge. His process aims to reinvent context and meaning through collage and installation. In 2018, collaborating with the MNHA Museum in Luxembourg, he produced his work Unknown Relics / Relics of the Unknown, a still-life project exploring blind spots of museological practice by employing and photographing museum artefacts of unknown origin. His work has been presented in Greece and abroad and can be found in the collections of the EIB Institute, the Thessaloniki Museum of Photography and the Municipal Gallery of Thessaloniki.
