CURRENT LOCATION: Istanbul, Turkey

They say that “one picture is worth a thousand words”. However, for me that’s not enough. What I want is both the picture and the words. That for me is the essence of photojournalism.

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece where I currently live. I have studied journalism in my country and later worked in various media outlets over the years. Among others is the national TV station ANT1 TV, the online edition of the weekly newspaper Proto Thema and Daphne Communications, one of the leading magazine publishers in Greece. Since 2013 I am a contributing writer for the US music magazine Rock Revolt Magazine.

Currently, I work as a freelance photojournalist, writer and documentary photographer covering a wide range of news in Greece and the region. My work has appeared in local and international publications such as The Economist, POLITICO Europe, SPIEGEL ONLINE, Vox, Public Radio International (PRI), Middle East Eye, El País and Balkan Insight, among others. I am also a blogger for the HuffPost Greece and contract photographer for the US based photo agency ZUMA Press.
