With the rapid expansion and availability of technology, photography is now used on an
unprecedented scale; millions of images are created around the globe every single day.
People from all realms of life take photos to preserve moments, to share experiences, and to express thoughts, ideas, and feelings. The idea for Pixie Lab & Studio was born out of the need for a photography hub that takes a fresh look at the evolving photography scene in Cyprus. Our vision is to bring together photographers, visual artists, creative entrepreneurs, collectors and anyone else with a sincere interest in the medium, with the aim to contribute to the enhancement of cultural life within the local community.
Initially established in 2018 as a studio and a space for photography classes, Pixie Lab &
Studio has recently expanded both its physical presence and its services. Besides a renovated studio that can accommodate a number of different needs and requirements, Pixie Lab & Studio now offers a minimal, yet welcoming, space for classes, lectures, discussions and other events, an exhibition space, film development and scanning services, as well as Cyprus’ only physical and online bookstore specializing in photography.
Being a fast-growing small business, our greatest asset is our people: a diverse team from
various backgrounds and experience, eager to support each other and to direct our efforts
towards the achievement of Pixie Lab and Studio’s goals and vision. Are you ready to join us in our journey?
