Katerina Kaloudi was born in March 1962. She lives and works in Athens, Greece.

She studied Mathematics and Art at Hamilton College, New York, and Photography at the Royal College of Art in London.

Her photographs earned her the prize for excellence at the Royal College of Art (1986), and the Kodak award in Greece (1987).

She has been travelling since 1986, taking photographs in Greece and other countries. Her work has been published in newspapers, magazines and books. Her album Gypsies was published in 1991. She has also been commissioned by companies, industries and banks to photograph on different themes. Her work for Filippou Investments is permanently exhibited at the companys headquarters, while her photographs on musical themes grace the Filippos Nakas conservatory.

She has participated in several group exhibitions, including the 2nd Biennale of Young Artists (1986), 20 Young Greek Photographers (1988) and Image and Idol (1997), as well as three one-man shows: at the Ileana Tounta Center of Contemporary Art with Gypsies (1991), at Alpha Bank with 24 Hours in the Bank, and at the Skoufa Gallery with Photographs (2002).

The photographs assembled in GREEKS-EHNE reflect her interest in the interaction between nature and culture, and the relationships between tradition, modernism and identity in Greece.
