I was born in Drama in 1982, a city in northern Greece, where I live and work until today.
I studied Business Administration in Kavala.
The landscape today is a dynamic canvas that evolves positively or negatively through time. The human factor intervenes transforming it and changing it into something new. The images I make are usually landscapes in the limits of urban, outwardly and surreal pictures of my town, a complication of evolution and abandonment over time. My pictures show this antithesis. My photos seem to have been photographed easily, with an almost direct to the issue view and a purity in the form. This provides an easy first reading of my images and slowly reveals many things once deepens. All this, through my photograph, take a different meaning and substance. I photograph exclusively in square format. Composition and colour play decisive role in my photos. I see without a camera most of the pictures and then, I come back again and again to find the appropriate lighting conditions to photograph them. Human element is a rarity in my pictures, and when there is, it simply completes the position of my frame.
Photography is the medium that reveals all the forms around me, that are in constant communication with my inner truth.
