Daphne Kotsiani was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. She studied classical piano and works as a musician, participating in numerous concerts and festivals in the field of contemporary classical, experimental and improvised music. Except from music, she has developed a great interest in photography which she uses as a main medium of expression and exploration. Combining analogue and digital techniques, she strives to form her personal feel/association with the surrounding and subject rather than document a realistic photo. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions, photography festivals and fairs and her work has been published in various photo magazines. She has self-published three photo books: “ICELAND-In the Land of Ice and Fire”, “Beyond The Arctic Circle” and “After Echo”.
