I’m a photographer of places, food, people and narrative still-lifes.
Having lived in Greece, the U.K. and Germany, I’m now based both in London and Athens and my work focusses mostly in Europe, the Mediterranean sea and the countries around it.
I love to mix simple everyday angles of people's lives, food and creative behaviours with a fine art / contemporary photography touch, capturing details and moods that are often overlooked.
I’m fluent in English, German and Greek. I do speak some outrageous Italian and totally fake French with a great accent. Learning Spanish at the moment.
