The year Protected content the twenty-fifth anniversary since the death of photographer Elly Sougioultzoglou-Seraidari ( Protected content ), better known as Nelly’s.
This retrospective exhibition, that pays tribute to her, reintroduces the artist to today’s public. Her diverse work is arranged in three chapters corresponding to the three cities in which she shaped her photographic point-of-view: from her student years in Dresden in the early ’20s to her arrival in Athens, where she cut a dynamic figure within the city’s photographic world, and on to New York, where, in Protected content , she finally retired after twenty-seven years of tireless work in the U.S.A.
The arrangement of her photographic oeuvre into groups illustrates the vast array of themes that triggered her lens during the forty-five years of her professional involvement with the medium. Well-known photographs from her numerous publications are complemented by new and heretofore unseen works, in an attempt to highlight the diverse aesthetic trends that she followed as well as the many techniques with which she experimented, both in black & white and colour. The exhibition is accompanied by magazines, posters and postcards, which help visitors understand the use of her photographic works in context, as well as rare cinematic footage and some of the photographic equipment that she used in Greece and the U.S.A.

After visiting the exhibition we can see at the cafe of the museum, or get drinks nearby in Gazi.
