About ‘Self-documentation‘:

My work’s theme is self-documentation.I photograph my life, the environment I am in and the people I share it with at certain times when I feel that this moment needs to be captured. There are also cases where I stage a photograph in order to portray what I need to express at that time of my life.I find interest in self-portraits and depicting situations that I share with others.

In order for me to photograph something or someone, there has to be a sense of connection.Creating an atmosphere between them and me so that the final outcome will display parts of us. A mix of selves into one image. The element of nude in the photographs is very intense.Considering the body as well as the soul, I believe that when people are exposing their naked body in my pictures, they are exposing an inner part of themselves.

Returning to an innocence where we feel comfortable of displaying a self and its own shadows as something natural. I always tend to interpret personal feelings by depicting non-human subjects.I generally photograph anything that intrigues me.Wether it is a place, an object, an animal or a person.

Through this body of work I aim to capture moments of self – exploration.
Anthropology, psychology, poetry, symbolism, intimacy and memories, all these are subjects that this project examines. As well as , people’ s relations with themselves, with others, with the environments surrounding them and with notions such as time ,change, death and life. These are the matters that my photographs aim to capture.

This work was created both in Greece and in England from 2011-2017.
