Born in Rotterdam (1988), The Netherlands
My photography stems from my travels. I have lived in the Netherlands all my life. Since my mother is of Dutch descent and my father of Greek, I used to travel a lot between these two countries to see my family when I was a child. It was in Greece that I came in touch with a completely different culture from the one I had known so far. I remember the Cretan roads, the orange trees and the boisterous sea beating the rocky coast while we were driving in my fathers pickup. I remember the atmospheric landscapes and situations that I kept with me for long.These are some of the memories that are always with me while traveling. Now, many years later, I can see how the travels of my youth influenced me and my works, and how it shaped my identity.
What interests me in the medium photography is that it captures a specific moment in time, placed in a fixed frame. My work can be seen as a slow, patient and observant study about people, time and space that I have encountered.
