    Gold in People / Self-Portrait

From the series "Journey within" A desperate surge to self-discovering, exploring the connection between the "Who am I" and "What am I"

Street and documentary photographer based in Paphos-Cyprus. Although largely self-taught, I have attended a few courses run by some world-renowned photographers:Jason Eskenazi, Eric Kim, Ilias Georgiadis, Loukas Vasilikos, Michail Moscholios, Platon Rivellis. My pictures are mostly from streets around the world capturing moods, behaviours and atmospheres in people’s daily life. It helps me to connect with people on a physical level and emotional level as well. With each picture I take I aim to invite the viewers to pause and take a glimpse into the daily life it flees unnoticed.
