I was born in Athens, Greece. When I was of primary school age, my family relocated to Montreal, Canada where I was raised and educated. I later moved to the United States to continue my education and then returned home to Montreal to begin a university teaching career in sociology.

After about a decade or so, coming full circle, I returned to my birthplace where I now live, teach and take photographs. My experience with photography began as a graduate student. For many years afterward it was halted, only to re-emerge suddenly, and for no apparent reason, in 2012. Since then, photography is an essential part of my life.

A Statement on my Photography
I experience photography as a need to capture something that has evoked in me a sense of urgency by its sheer being, a feeling of elation, regardless of the specific content of the image. In this way, series of photographs emerge out of captures not initially intended as a whole, but which have all provoked in me a deeply felt presence in the moment. A common theme emerges after the fact and I regularly reassess and reconsider images included in existing series.   

In that sense, the photos shown here are all bodies of ongoing work. Each series is fluid. Photos may be added or removed and titles are transitory. I see them simply as formations with temporary labels that facilitate the presentation and communication of my work at a given point in time.
