about stelios

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. 
I studied Jazz music and for a short period of time worked as a jazz musician. In 2009, while being constantly on the road for work, I picked up photography as a means of keeping a visual diary. Ever since, my interest in photography has kept growing, I attended the seminars of Platon Rivellis and today photography is my full time occupation.

I see photography as a means, not as a goal in itself. Some years ago, while reading a magazine, I came across a phrase by Marcel Proust. It wasn't referring to photography, but i believe it epitomizes within a sentence, the whole essence, the challenge and the fascination of the photographic process and life itself: "The true voyage of discovery, consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes".
