Maria Mavropoulou (1989) lives and works in Athens, EL. She completed her MFA studies at Athens School of Fine Arts in 2018, from where she attained her BA in 2014. Playing with the perception of viewers, she aspires to question the role and power of photography in an era that is dominated by it. Her work has been presented in the Culturescapes festival (Basel, CH, 2017), Athens Photo Festival (EL, 2016), Krakow Photomonth (PL, 2016), Athens Biennale 5 to 6 (EL, 2015, 2017), 5th Thessaloniki Biennale (EL, 2015), Mois de la photo (Paris, FR, 2014), European month of photography (Budapest, HU, 2014), Fotoistanbul (Istanbul, TR, 2014) and Benaki museum (Athens, EL, 2014). She is a member of the “Depression Era” collective of artists who inhabit the urban and social landscapes of the crisis in Greece.
