Anna Karvounari

Photographer, Greece

Anna Karvounari is an auto-didactic photographer from Greece, currently based in Athens. Her work stands out for its unique approach on creating conceptual self-portraits in which the solitary female figure plays a central role. Through her images, she seeks to deeply explore themes related to feminine nature, while at the same time giving voice to her deepest personal feelings.

For the artist, the act of creating self-portraits transcends the realm of simple image capture, becoming a powerful exercise in self-reflection and an ongoing internal dialogue. Her ability to integrate conceptual and emotional elements in her creations culminates into a visual narrative that encourages the viewer to explore the dimensions as the nuances of human experience particularly in the context of femininity.
