Born in Greece in 1972, he lives and works in Athens.

Aspassio Haronitaki is a Greek photographer who studied in Paris. The body is a central theme in his work, as is his fascination for medical imagery. For his series Moon Flowers, Haronitaki collaborated with doctors, radiologists and technicians to create colorful, digital images of flowers, bodies and objects set against an aquatic background, using scientific techniques to make the complexity of our world apparent. In 2003, Haronitaki was exhibited at the Venice Biennale along with Louise Bourgeois’ work. For the occasion, he created a portrait of Bourgeois, covering her face with feline fur; it is one of Bourgeois’ most iconic images.
