Valeria Chorozidi is a fine art photographer from Greece who is ever-drawn to the darkness of things. Until recently, she shot mostly self-portraits inspired by ideas that came to her late at night. While she also now works with other models, self-portraiture continues to serve as an important creative outlet for her personal and aesthetic discovery. Featured here is a selection of her images with their eerie, recurring elements; smoke and tentacles writhe and expand, poetically exploring the passionate and often terrifying depths of mythology and human emotion.
