Krystalán Chryssomallis - From Music Executive To Inspirational Female Leader
Krystalán Chryssomallis has been an executive in the music industry for over a decade. She's directed communications and marketing for musicians within the Sony Masterworks record label, developed artists through Disney Music Group and designed and implemented key branding projects with organizations ranging from NASA to World Wildlife Fund.
While these accomplishments are impressive it's actually no surprise Krystalán has a magic touch when it comes to creative projects, especially with regard to music. Her father is a world-renowned composer and musician Yanni, who has a devoted following of millions. What many don't know, however, is that Krystalán has been an integral component of his continued success - overseeing his marketing and producing many of his largest events for the past decade.
While her creative career began as an award-winning music executive touring with one of the industry's biggest names, today she is best known for her ability to capture the raw energy and soul of the individuals and places she photographs in a way that truly captivates and inspires her following. Krystalán is currently harnessing her creative capacity to inspire unity through photography, and she views photography as a form of storytelling, illuminating the untold lives of people and cultures around the world.
Krystalán believes that a picture is a tool, and she utilizes this powerful art form to connect humans from all walks of life and share a message of positivity and hope from every corner of the world. In a recent interview, she explained, "I learned to see the positive because I've gone through darkness myself and realized that we can all consciously choose joy no matter what. We get to decide how we react to the world regardless of what we are dealing with." Her work reflects this, reminding viewers of the human condition, encapsulating the interconnectivity of our lives, and highlighting the common threads that connect us.
In addition to her photography, Krystalán passionately advocates for children's rights and education - the people, places, and cultures that enrich our humanity and the understanding that each child has all they need within themselves.
She is truly one of the world's top creatives to watch, and her photographs capture the energy and essence of their subjects, conveying emotions that transcend the boundaries of race, culture, and language.
