Dimitris Theocharis (Greek Δημήτρης Θεοχάρης ) was born on October 15, 1977 in San Jose, California to Greek parents. He is a photographer and video director who works in the fields of fashion, advertising, and fine art photography, and is noted for his surreal, unique and often colourful style.
Early life and career
Theocharis' family returned to Greece whilst he was still an infant. He grew up in Chalcis (Greek Χαλκίδα), Greece and has been living in the United Kingdom since 1995. He presently works from his studio in Covent Garden.
He studied Fine Art (Sculpture) at Northumbria University, Newcastle Upon Tyne, and Photography & Digital Arts at the University of Westminster, London. He has exhibited in various experimental project spaces in London and New York such as VTO Gallery, Exit Art, Dragon and Box.
He draws inspiration from his ongoing contradictory questioning on cultural conditioning, stereotypes, mortality and the significance of oneself within society. His approach tends to be poetically narrative with an essence of nostalgia of a less confined existence
Theocharis' work has been widely published in magazines including, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Let Them Eat Cake, Wound Magazine and Schön. In May 2011 his fashion photography was showcased in Victor by Hasselblad, the leading photographic journal.
