He seeks to place Man at the epicentre of all his work. Articles, tributes, projects, images, surveys and interviews of his have been published in the Greek and international media. His photography has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both in Greece and abroad. He teaches Visual Storytelling at photography and journalism workshops, keen to pass on the knowledge and experience whice others handed down to him with such generosity.  His book “Aimos – Wanderings in the balkans” was edited and  published in September 2019 for Agra Publications. He is currently working on his next project, which tackles mental health and social stigma.
