Panos Tsagaris and Kimberley Norcott are an artist duo based in New York, that makes beautiful and mystical photographs and performances. Their collaborations are often very personal and originates from a period of extensive research. They study and examine various religions and spiritual traditions. The photography series ‘Initiations’ , that projects mystical symbols onto their own bodies, is based on ancient mystical initiation processes. Inspired by ritualistic traditions, their mystical qualities, and enlightening results, as they are reflected in the close relationship of two people. New work by Panos is focused on the Cosmic hierarchy and its relation in regards to the hierarchy of the soul.
Through my work I aim to express the emanation of the “Divine” as It is reflected through the beauty and poetry of the everyday in order to bring myself and the viewer closer to a state of Catharsis (purification). – Panos Tsagaris
