I was born in 1971 and from my journey so far I am convinced of one thing: that this continuously revolving flow of the long and short history of humanity, may breathe some dignity of life and be rejuvenated once more only through the lungs of art.
My art, photography.
My studies and the knowledge I have attained, guided me to perceive my photographic field and its subjective evolution.
My professional path is the definition of unbroken experience, and my participation in group and solo exhibitions marks my inner need to bring the public into contact with the creative view of my work, having in mind a single purpose· the creative interaction between the artist and the receiver which helps both sides to boldly and honestly see and experience their true meaning.
Within the boundaries of this philosophy, I have dedicated a large part of my life in teaching. The exchange of emotions, thoughts and knowledge with my students is not only an interactive experiential act but has also been transformed into a magical journey aiming at the unexpected. That which astonishes and surprises us all. In other words, I am trying to emerge and keep alive the child that all of us once were and, through a variety of excuses, have forgotten or denied.
Because artistic photography and its visual approach can only be a realistic and symbolic depiction of the emotions that overwhelm our existence during our reality.
