Eleni Leoussi
Eleni Leoussi is best known for her highly original photographs of contemporary dance, commissioned by some of the leading performers and dance companies in the UK.









Eleni Leoussi was born in Greece in 1946. She studied drawing and sculpture in Athens before moving to London in the late 60's where she has been a resident ever since.

She specialised in photographing contemporary dance from the early 70's through to the mid 90's gaining great respect in this field for her powerful and fluid images, the majority of which were shot during full dress rehearsals rather than staged work.

A comprehensive archive of her work is shown here, most of which is is in her book 'Rehearsal' published by Dewi Lewis in 1998.

Also shown are some of Eleni's other work including some travel images which are taken from her book 'My Greece' published by Patakis in 2004.

Since the early 70's, Eleni's work has featured in many publications and has been exhibited on numerous occasions. Her current aim is to have the full archive of her work exhibited in its entirety. All the dance images are framed to museum standard in sizes up to 60 x 40"

Recently, she has concentrated on collage and painting and a selection of her artwork is included here.
