With her photographic work, Maria Sarafi explores the boundaries between reality and illusion and creates intimate, obscure, unsettling universes. Inspired by surrounding elements, objects, space, nature and her own emotions and experiences, she translates them into images.


Maria grew up between Greece and Germany. Passionate about photography, she experiments with photography during her studies as a Computer Engineer in Greece.  Based in Switzerland since 2011, Maria rediscovers her artistic path, while pursuing a career as an IT Program Manager. From 2014 she participates in workshops and master classes. Her work has been presented in various exhibitions.


She speaks fluently greek, english, french and german.
