About EVA KALPADAKI
I was born in Crete, Greece. After I was awarded a Greek State Foundation scholarship I moved to UK to complete a PhD in Arts and Communication at UCA. I am a qualified teacher holding a PGCE teaching certificate from the University of Brighton. I am currently based in Brighton working as a fine art photographer and photography tutor. In my artistic practice I am not using the photographic medium to produce a record and a document of the world, which is what we usually expect to see in a photograph. I am using it to question the nature of photography and to cause a tension in what we are looking at. I am playing between representation and abstraction. I was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2008 exhibition among numerous solo and group shows.
