Born in Paris in 1990 to a French-Greek father and an English-Scottish mother, Fiona Filipidis
is a documentary photographer working in Paris and London. Her practice is born out of collection, research, and empathic response. She looks for the image that happens before the actual taking of the picture – the escape to feeling. Most comfortable when surrounded by either trees or water, she is interested in nature, as well as the private worlds of the everyday. Fiona holds a BA in Photography from Icart Photo in Paris, and has just graduated from London College of Communication with an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography. Her work has been exhibited in the South of France, Paris, and New York City amongst other places. Her latest project, To make a prairie, is an image/text book portraying our relationship with the honey bee throughout the years.
