Biography

Eva was born in Greece. After she was awarded a Greek State Foundation scholarship she moved to UK to complete a PhD in Arts and Communication at UCA. She is currently based in Brighton working as a fine art photographer and a PGCE qualified photography teacher. In her artistic practice, she works against the conventions of what our expectations from Photography are. She is not using the photographic medium to produce a record and a document of the world, which is what we usually expect to see in a photograph. She is using it to question the nature of photography and to cause a tension in what we are looking at. She is playing between representation and abstraction and she is producing photographs that become diachronic objects of aesthetic contemplation. She was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2008 exhibition among numerous solo and group shows.
