Stavros Messinis

M-ART BOOKS is excited to unveil “Metamorphosis,” a compelling new photography book by acclaimed artist Stavros Messinis. Scheduled for release in September 2023, this captivating collection takes readers on an experimental journey into the sociological concept of the melting pot while delving into the complexities of multiculturalism, identity transformation, and assimilation in our increasingly globalized world.

In “Metamorphosis,” Stavros Messinis fearlessly pushes the boundaries of conventional photography, showcasing a multidimensional realm of artistic expression. Through unconventional techniques such as boiling water film development and re-photographing burned selfies, he captures the essence of personal experiences and the diverse environments encountered during his travels across Europe, Asia, and Australia.

Metamorphosis is more than a mere collection of photographs; it is an exploration of the human condition, a visual narrative that unveils the complexities of our rapidly changing world. It is an invitation to contemplate the profound impact of these sociological concepts on personal evolution. Through his artistic vision, Stavros sparks conversations and encourages readers to embrace the beauty and intricacies found within the diverse tapestry of our society.

“Metamorphosis” will be available for purchase starting September 2023 through the official M-ART BOOKS website ( Pre-orders are now open for those eager to secure their copy of this extraordinary publication.
