Persephone Michou (1995) was born in Ioannina, Greece, and grew up in Athens. She started using the medium of photography at a young age. She studied Photography and Audiovisual Arts at the University of West Attica in Athens​ and the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary. Currently, she lives in the Netherlands where she is completing a master's programme in Arts&Culture at the University of Groningen.


Persephone experiments with analogue photography and alternative techniques. The subjects she chooses to work with share a connection to her inner self and her past, while she is concerned with the meanings of memory and time. Overall, she attempts to discover her identity through visual arts and explore new mediums of creation.
