Thalia Galanopoulou was born in 1991 in Athens, Greece. She studied photography and video from 2011 to 2013 at the Focus School of Photography and New Technologies in Athens, and then moved on to do a Master’s degree in Photographic studies at the University of Westminster in London, UK. Her work is a mix of personal projects and documentary photography, as photographing for her is a tool for self-psychotherapy and visual activism. Her projects have been exhibited in group shows in Athens and London, and have been published in Greek and British magazines/newspapers. In 2012 she attended Pavlos Fysakis’s ‘Personal Vision’ documentary photography workshop, where she developed a project about a dark, unseen subculture of Athens. Her Master’s degree major project was developed around the bankers and business men of the City of London, where through street portraits, she creates a dialogue between the English capitalist system and the economic crisis in Greece. In 2016, she won the CU Romatso creative hub contest, through which she will be working on the creation of a curated online platform that promotes young greek documentary photographers and offers interactive editing of the hosted work. She is currently working as a photojournalist for the greek newspaper ‘Ethnos’.
