I am a photographer and creative director operating of my own studio based in London with a taste for glamour and drama.
When Phillip Prokopiou and Panagiotis Poimenidis met in a chance encounter in London in November 2012, they embarked on a creative journey fuelled by their love for each other and the arts. With no formal training in photography, they picked up a camera began bringing to life their collective imaginations, photographing highly styled images of their friends and the exquisite individuals of London. Informed by the glamour of classic films, fashion and kitsch culture they developed an idiosyncratic style that seeks to amplify the elegant facets of their subject’s character. In 2014 the duo set up a space in South London’s Bussey Building and Studio Prokopiou was born. The studio allowed them to create increasingly elaborate sets for their photo shoots and they began to collaborate with various artists and performers. Their models are voices of subculture and of a shared aesthetic. The use of dramatic lighting and campy art direction lends the work a cinematic feel and invites the viewer to an escape from reality. Studio Prokopiou has enjoyed ongoing collaborations with drag artistes Virgin Xtravaganzah and Imma Mess, as well as creating editorials for feminist tattoo magazine Things & Ink.
