A PHOTOGRAPH IS A PICTURE PAINTED BY THE SUN Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. I believe that travel broadens one's view of the world. Experiencing other cultures, meeting people from other communities and other countries and seeing the beauty, and sometimes ugliness, of the world has helped me understand that all of our lives are at once interconnected and individual. It has made me better appreciate my own home and culture as well as that of the people I've met and the lands I've seen and I have become a much more tolerant person as a result. Through my photography I seek to document my own personal experiences, to capture scenes and events as I see them and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world I've seen. As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world, I hope my own contributions will inspire others to do the same. Lesvos is a beautiful islands in the middle of the Aegean where people try to live side by side with nature.

I consider Lesvos to be one of the greatest places in the world to live and visit today, so my main motivation is to show you the best of this island, the beauty and the uniqueness of the people and culture. In my gallery you can find photos about Lesvos landscapes, festivals, architecture, traditions, wildlife and flora. I also shoot stock photography, which is usually described as concept photos. You will also find some travel photography from other places I have been to.
