Profile

Maria Mavropoulou

Photographer

Maria Mavropoulou was born in 1989 and she lives and works in Athens, Greece. She completed her MFA studies in 2018, at the Athens School of Fine Arts, from where she got her BA in 2014. She has studied painting and sculpture, although her main medium is photography. Characteristic of her work is that the resulting images are at the boundary line between plausibility or not, potentiality and non-potentiality, random and constructed. By playing with the perception of viewers she questions the role and power of photography in an era that is dominated by it. Since 2014 she is member of the collective of artists Depression Era that inhabit the urban and social landscapes of the crisis in Greece. Her work has been presented in exhibitions in Greece and abroad and publicized in multiple magazines.
