I am a photographer and educator based in Brighton, UK.
My studies include a BSc in Law, an MA in Photography, a foundation in Art Therapy and a PGCE in Further Education. I have created my own workshops on Subjective Photography and autobiographical storytelling and deliver them internationally. In 2014 I was invited from ISSP, as one of the 6 international experts, to deliver a workshop as part of the Contemporary Self Portrait Project. My teaching includes elements of Art Therapy.
Mythology, memory, fantasy and the unconscious form the basis for my creativity. My project Traces Within has been awarded honourable mentions at the 2008 and 2009 PX3 Paris Photography Prize competition in the category of fine art student and has been internationally recognized and exhibited among other places at 2009 Arles juried festival Voies Off, 2010 Rome Fotografia Festival in MACRO Museum of Contemporary Arts, BOM gallery in Seoul, Menier and HOST gallery in London. The dummy Traces Within was selected for the F Photobook Show in Tokyo Institute of Photography in 2014.
Since 2008 I have been working collaboratively and inter-generationally on the family archives of my tiny village Drakona in Crete. My dummy Family Photo Scketch Book: The Drakona Block was selected as a finalist for the 2014 Kassel International Photobook Dummy Award (exhibited in Goethe Institute-Ankara, MIA Image Art Fair-Milan, PhotoIreland-Dublin, IED-Madrid, The Photobook Museum-Cologne, Fotogaleriet-Oslo, Le Bal-Paris, Fotoleggendo-Rome, Paraty Em Foco-Paraty, Madalena Workshops-Sao Paolo, FORMAT and Liverpool International Photography Festivals, Athens Photo Festival-Athens.)
In 2015 I was selected for the Magnum Professional Practice Masterclass in London.
Since January 2016 I am an associate tutor at University of Sussex and at International Study Group, teaching photography.
