    Vasiliki Sandali

Self, intimacy, reflexivity….In this series of photographs I am exploring various themes revolving around the Self. The headless self-portraits located within my most intimate space and objects are trying to observe me from afar and, at the same time, trace my inner world; to grope at myself, at my feelings, my body and its sexuality, my vulnerabilities. Through this photographic introspection I am reflecting upon time and the fear of death, the distortions of the soul, about my internal sounds and conflicts. While this is an attempt to detect my inner self.

Vasiliki Sandali was born and grew up in Athens, Greece. In 2009 she attended the photographic seminars, over the period 2015/16 the seminars of “Photographic Circle” conducted by Platon Rivellis, and in 2016 a workshop on ‘Intuitive Photography’ delivered by Achilles Nasios.
