Greta Lorimer

Greta Lorimer, born in Florence (Italy) and based in Switzerland, is a visual creative specialized in photography, philosophy of the image and therapeutic photography. Her research follows a project-based practice that sees photography and philosophy deeply intertwined, both rooted in a strong interest in the human understanding of life. Mostly drawn to the body, the portrait and the self portrait, Greta uses her photography as an introspective and performative tool to explore the narratives that occur on the threshold between the inner world and the outside world.

Greta graduated with a BA in Philosophy from University La Sapienza of Rome. She then moved to the United Kingdom where she pursued a Master’s Degree in Photography at the University of Brighton.
