Celebrating 20 Years at Westmead

Starlight Express Room

About the Photographer: VASILI VASILEIADIS


Vasili Vasileiadis studied Interior Design before becoming interested in photography. Born in Thessaloniki, Greece, Vasili now lives and works in Sydney, Australia.

Vasili's photography has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions including representation at the 19th Photobiennale in Thessaloniki, Greece, The National Portrait Prize (2007) and Cross Projections (2007). In 2013 Vasili exhibited his series Service, a personal and moving account of his service in the Greek Army.

A documentary photographer who finds inspiration from life, Vasili's photography has no clearly defined start or end points.

Creative Statement

Entering the Starlight Room I immediately knew this was a special place. Children come here to be children, and perhaps this special place reminds them of this.

I enjoyed working on this ambitious and challenging project, and thank The Children’s Hospital at Westmead for the opportunity to be a part of this special place, even just for a few hours.
