Portrait of wig artist and drag personality Hollie Would.
London-based Phillip Prokopiou was born to Greek immigrants in South Africa. The self-taught photographer established a practice in 2014 under the name Studio Prokopiou, co-founded with his partner in life and art, Greek native, Panos Poimenidis. Their work is an exploration of self-invention and identity, informed by art history, pop culture and classical mythology incorporating the artifice of camp. The images are the result of an ongoing dialogue between the duo and their subjects.
Studio Prokopiou has exhibited internationally and has been profiled on Vogue Italia, as well as nominated in British Journal of Photography’s 2018 Ones To Watch Issue.
