Gina Socrates

As a photographer, Gina draws inspiration from the island.

Its sometime soft and delicate, sometime harsh and rugged coastline, its traditional and contemporary architecture, its abundant flora and the individual characters of the locals.

Often, Gina interprets her subjects in a way that renders them almost abstract by focusing on details and minutiae which may otherwise pass unnoticed. The results are images that become visual riddles which entice the viewer 
to explore and interpret them, while at the 
same time maintaining an aesthetic quality which can be appreciated in its own right.

Conversely, many of her photographs pull back to capture the wider picture: from expansive seascapes to distant portraits and character observations, these images seek to offer an overall view. Minimalist and sometimes stark, these photographs are often more Spartan than her abstract work through their focusing on detail contextualised within a vast setting.
