Moving away from the city of Athens, brought me to Limnos Island where I have been living for the last 8 years. I have been a mother the last 7 years. Due to this change I had to reinvent myself, trying to balance the time and obligations between family life, motherhood and career. “The Living Room” Series was a result of my need to get connected with the local community. I approached mothers and asked them to write something brief responding to their experience on a piece of paper. Then I took a photo of them holding the piece of paper inside their living room. The project was paused in April 2020 due to Covid Quarantine.
