#bOObs in the media

Leading up to the exhibition of the #bOObs project at iFocus Gallery in Athens, Greece, several media outlets picked up the story, helping to break taboos related to the female body and spread the word about breast cancer awareness.

On the eve of the inauguration of the #bOObs project’s photo exhibition, I had the pleasure of speaking with journalist Alexandra Skaraki from the Huffington Post Greece about my work and the exhibition itself.

Kathimerini

How cool is it to have your morning coffee reading a national newspaper with an article in it about your project? TOTALLY COOL!

That’s exactly what happened today and I’m absolutely thrilled about it!

I spoke to journalist Ioanna Fotiadi, editor at Kathimerini -one of the main national newspapers in Greece, about #bOObs: the project’s goals, the aesthetic and the exhibition. Her article was printed in the Culture section of the paper, inviting all to the exhibition.

You can check out the online version here.

LadyLike

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting journalist Dimitra Tsigene and photographer Francesca Watkinson from LadyLike, whom I welcomed at my studio where we had a wonderful chat about the #bOObs project.

 

We spoke about how it all started and why I felt the need to do this project, its implementation and the importance of doing the photo sessions in groups (with the photos shot privately). We discussed why the project is anonymous, not showing any faces, making women’s chests the protagonist and the overall aim of #bOObs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, we took some photos for the magazine, recreating the project’s aesthetic, where I was placed in front of the lens.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the full interview in Greek (you’re welcome to use your browser’s auto translation feature to get the gist of the story) with Francesca’s lovely photos: LadyLike interview

Last but not least, I invite you to my first solo exhibition, where you can get an up close and personal look at the #bOObs project.
