I am a freelance photojournalist based in Athens, Greece. Born in Heraklion Crete, been doing things I didn't like until I discovered photography and in particular photojournalism. My motivation is being present and responsible for the honest record of situations and stories, so those who were not there will know what happened. My drive is the story. The purpose is not the picture itself, it is the story. The picture is simply the means to communicate it.
