Tsoukatou has moved beyond the limitations of the camera to render images of time flowing through her images.  She sees objects in motion and captures the essence of their motion.  There is urgency surrounding her subjects, a need to be somewhere, to do something.  Not to stand still.  Her images recognize that life does not stand still…

Tsoukatou’s images reveal the movement and rhythm of life, the fleeting details and mysteries unfolding in common places and chance moments.  The subtle gestures, the furtive glances, the darkness that illuminates; these are a few of the recurring symbols which appear in Popi’s work that help us recognize ourselves in the unguarded moments of our own lives.
