Androniki was born in Thessaloniki, Greece and studied photography in Athens and London.
Following a successful career in Greece working on assignments for Greek magazines and later for the Athens Olympic Committee photographing the 2004 Athens Olympics, she moved to Tokyo in November 2004. Since then she works freelance on assignments for international magazines and newspapers such as The Times, The Independent and The Telegraph (UK), Der Spiegel, (Germany), Marie Claire (Australia), K-magazine (Greece), Businessweek (US), Transit, Sotokoto, Shukan Asahi (Japan) etc. and for corporate clients such as Apple Japan.
She also works on long-term photography projects, which are published in magazines or exhibited in galleries. She is interested in the human condition and approaches her subjects with respect and humor. She has been photographing many aspects of life in Japan that vary from everyday life, traditional culture, subcultures or the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Japan continues to be her main field but she is gradually expanding her work in other Eastern and Southeastern Asian countries.
The last few years she has also been shooting video for assignments and she is gradually expanding her skills in creating short movies and multimedia.
She has already published a book on Otaku culture: "OTAKU SPACES", in collaboration with a writer, and the self published book "UNDERWORLD" with flooded landscapes of areas of Tohoku that were destroyed by the 2011 tsunami. She is currently working on new projects aiming on producing more exhibitions and publications in the future.
