"Capturing glances of the moments that passed us by, in times when we were maybe too young to realise that they weren’t there to stay until eternity would have torn us apart.
But still old enough to know they were worth noticing."
Lily Zoumpouli was born in Thessaloniki in 1994.
She started taking photography seminars with the photographic team Stereosis and got her Certificate in 2012 at the age of 18 (2010-12).
In 2015 she was offered a lifelong membership to exhibit her work on LensCulture professional worldwide photographer’s website.
"The need for a way of connecting through a medium with my own feelings and surroundings became the catalyst of this works existence.
Each photograph has a background story that carries on its shoulders the reason for its own memory.
The distance that separates us from our subject is the one that needs to be walked, in order to find the reflection of our inner selves and others combined into one image,
forming a mixture of selves."
"A connection being conceived within a captivating atmosphere that was inspired by the desire of transferring into another reality, forming a duality through the final outcome of the photograph.
The intense element of nude is depicting the return to an innocent comfort of being bare naked, but mostly of being pure towards yourself and towards the observer- displaying a self and its shadows."
"Every so often there are staged moments representing a personal dive within every part that belongs to a past or a present, trying to be revealed through a newborn subject so to keep on recreating itself."
"An autobiographical documentary combined with allegorical aspects give a sense of spontaneity along with the subconscious, and slowly take over during the process of discovering a world out and within our own individuality."
