Vassilis was born in 1975 in Greece and is currently living in Amsterdam. He comes from a scientific background and after completing a doctorate in medical biology, he turned to photography which he now combines alongside his career in medical research.
He is interested in urban patterns of life and behaviour; how human and humanised nature mingle and clash. His practice explores themes of isolation and identity, the juxtaposition of collective and individual, communication versus segregation. By using small narratives he wants to shed light on ways we affect and are affected by artificial social and physical environments.
He has had several group exhibitions in The Netherlands (Cloud Gallery, Galerie Noord, Josilda da Conceicao Gallery, Bimhuis, Canvas), USA (See Me Gallery), Italy (VARCO Gallery, SATURA Art Gallery) and his work has been published in NRC Next, Volkskrant, the EXPOSURE collection by the See Me Publishing Group, Square Magazine, Create! Magazine, Dodho, Life Framer and Der Greif.
His work was included in The New Dutch Talent catalogue of 2017 from GUP magazine, and in the Encontros da Imagem 2017 festival program, while his project Point of View was shortlisted for FotoFilmic18.
