Diary of a photographer during the London lockdowns in 2020. Not being able to walk the streets to produce my usual work, I decided to turn the camera on to myself and explore my feelings, my insecurities, my hopes and my fears. The camera gave me a purpose during this very uncertain time and the creation of this project became a very psychotherapeutic process.

Margarita Mavromichalis thinks that photography is her second language, as it's universal and conveys messages in a powerful way.
Margarita is attracted to street photography and the elements that evoke emotions and surprise in our every day life. She is also passionate about documenting current events that she feels very strongly about, highlighting their social impact. Her work has been displayed in exhibitions worldwide,is the recipient of many awards and her work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of the city of NY. She was nominated for the Prix Pictet award in 2019.
