I BEGAN TAKING PICTURES FIVE YEARS AGO. ON THE STREET. NEVER STOPPED SINCE. MAINLY SELF TAUGHT, I HAVE ALSO ATTENDED A WORKSHOP BY MAGNUM'S PHOTOGRAPHER NIKOS ECONOMOPOULOS AND HAVE HAD REGULAR PORTFOLIO REVIEWS SINCE THEN. CURRENTLY DEVELOPING A LONG TERM PROJECT ON SOUTH AMERICA: A JOURNEY FROM ARGENTINA ALL THE WAY UP TO COLOMBIA, FAR FROM THE MAIN CITIES AND DEEP INTO THE SMALL URBAN AND RURAL AREAS THAT CONSTITUTE THE BACKBONE OF WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE PAN-AMERICAN HIGHWAY. THE ROAD SYMBOL OF A CONTROVERSIAL ATTEMPT TO UNITE MANY OF THE LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES. A ROAD WHICH IS, MOST OF ALL, A SILENT WITNESS TO THE RELENTLESS VITALITY OF ONE THE MOST SOCIALLY AND CULTURALLY DIVERSE AREAS IN THE WORLD.
