Having started photography as a Set Photographer in feature film productions, today my work focuses on people's exclusion from the social system as a result of belonging to minority social groups. Based in Burgundy, France and travelling often to Greece, I have been documenting since July 2015, the daily life of teen girls residing in state institution: "When I Grow Up, I Want to Be a Princess".
I also run workshops for pre-teens and teens in France and Switzerland directly related to online identity and digital reputation. MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography @ the University of the Arts, LCC/London

The Blue Dress

Long term documentary project, started in July 2015, in a Girls' State Institution in Athens/Greece. The girls are under 18 yrs old, therefore their faces are not revealed. They are issued from very complex family situations, remain in the institution for years and have great difficulties in reasserting the "real" world.  The project documents the daily lives of the girls within the Institution but also in the outside, through the following of the ones who left to have a try in the "real" world.
