Eleni Laparidou is an editorial photographer working in fashion and portraiture. Her fascination with myth, costume and performance pervade documentary projects such as Koudounoforoi (bell bearers) in which she captures an ancient Greek ritual kept alive by contemporary performers. In her fashion stories a surreal other-world is populated by whimsical characters, seducing, challenging and entertaining.
