Ellie Tsatsou is a Greek-born, London-based photographer & interdisciplinary artist whose work explores wonder, notions of home & intuition through the use of digital & analogue photography, film, editing & writing. Having been mentored by photographers Nick Knight (London, 2011/12) & Ryan McGinley (New York, 2013/14), her body of work draws references from the minimalism of her homeland’s philosophical cores & the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. Ellie has exhibited in Greece, Tunisia and the United Kingdom and her photographs are part of private collections in Washington DC, New York, London, Athens and Paris.

The Moon Series is a sequence of soft photographs of our earth's natural satellite, with the intention to allude the sense of scale of our known universe and to note a broader, wider perspective on life. As observed from various places of our planet, and by preserving the moon's perceived size as seen by the naked human eye, these photographs act as an invite to stargaze, intuit, gather and wonder. As a collection of works (ongoing since 2014), it has been inspired by the homecoming writings of Carl Sagan and the poems of Rumi, especially the love poem, 'Like this'.
