I was born in
Thessaloniki (Greece) in 1958, where I still live today.
I have been involved
with photography for over 40 years. For 15 years of those years, I was a professional
photographer in the fields of advertising and publishing.
I am a self-taught
photographer and I learned many things working alongside older photographers while
I did my studies at the Polytechnic Thessaloniki.
For me, photography is
a continuous form of psychotherapy, and I cannot imagine that I will ever stop
I photograph mainly
landscapes, portraits and cityscapes - things I can find in the streets or in nature.
Anything that creates a nice composition, tells a story, or evokes symbolism or
some feeling. Another big part of my work is music concerts, mainly jazz.
At the present time, I
work with digital media - a Nikon D7100, an Olympus E-P1 and an iPhone 4S.
