Aliartos Blues. Even though I have traveled a lot, my surroundings have a far more predominant place in my imagery.
The small town of Aliartos, my place, is situated in the center of Kopais fertile plain, a drained marsh.
I like to stroll all over this dystopian, yet lifeful land, recording the moodiness and grace of its landscape and population, locals, immigrant workers or the Roma community.

For several years, his work was regularly featured at the front-page of ‘’Savvato’’, the weekly literary magazine of ‘’ELEFTHEROTYPIA’’, a high-impact national Greek newspaper, while his photos have illustrated cover pages of books along with Greek and French literary magazines.
