hdr

 

Born in 1992 in Athens, Greece, Danai initially studied Fashion Styling but as she considers any artistic expression a vital necessity, she subsequently pursued her love for photography. As a result, she studied Photography and recently participated in a six-day workshop with Magnum photographer Antoine d’Agata. She also expresses herself through art direction, music, video art and poetry.

About the project WORMS:
From 2008 until 2017 Danai has been working on the project WORMS. WORMS is a study on how inflictive memories can affect the present time. A research on sexuality, the human body, fears and desires, either through the use of her own body or over her close surroundings. Shot from the time Danai was seventeen years old until now. She has used DSLR, mirrorless, compact cameras and smartphones.

WORMS was exhibited at The Art Foundation (TAF) between June 9 – June 22, 2017, as part of the Athens Photo Festival.
