Nicole Tsatsou
Photographer

My name is Nicole Tsatsou and I am a postgraduate student of the Master of Digital Arts, at the Athens School of Fine Arts. I have a Bachelor’s degree of the Department of Photography and Audiovisual Arts, of the TEI of Athens (University of West Attica), as well as a Bachelor’s of classical guitar studies. I regularly attend lectures and art seminars and participate in various photography competitions and exhibitions.

I mainly deal with self-portraits, staged photography and video art. Through my images I attempt an inner search around the self-image, and I try to set questions about the relationship between photography and reality, the interpretation of the image, but also the human need to immortalize the visible. I am concerned with issues of identity and roles. I explore the relationship between the photographer and the subject, and consequently of the artist and their model, and I study how they influence each other, something that is of particular interest in self-portraits. I like to create artistic hybrids, through the combination of influences and techniques from different artistic fields, and I study the way in which the human body can function as a symbolic element in art.

In my work I follow a kind of ritual, mainly in terms of research and the choices I make. This includes the semiology, the identity that I will choose to present, the means that I will use, but also what I will choose to present to the viewer. I try to combine knowledge and influences from my various interests, creating a dialogue between different fields. I combine influences from photography, painting, cinema, sculpture, and even music.
