For travel addicts and photography lovers
Traveling… a precious leisure activity or an intense need to learn and experience new things? In any case, travel is ingrained in our DNA, maybe that’s the driving force behind man’s colonization of every corner of the earth. The desire to explore new places has a powerful effect on us. Distances are measured differently for each person, but each journey, whether it is only a few steps away from home or to the end of the world, reserves for us new sensations, images, emotions, and lifechanging moments. Let’s board on a Trip in Pictures and absorb experiences and emotions of our world, through my images and words.
For passionate travelers
Traveling … is an addictive way out, an endless search for new experiences for the incurable traveler. For those who have the “travel bug” it’s the best gift offered to oneself. The purpose and perspective of the trip is different for everyone, for some it’s just a required move to a vacation spot, while for others it’s an opportunity to explore places, people and maybe their inner self. Personally, at some point I felt the need to explore the world beyond my beautiful home country, beyond the comforts of “civilized” Europe. During my valuable vacation time, I forego Greece’s wonderful islands and beaches in favor of discovering alternative beauty in locations that are untamed, sometimes harsh, but always enchanting.
Choosing to leave the comfort zone and roam the insecurity of the unknown, in comfort and safety standards significantly inferior to those found in the Western world. In developing countries and areas with serious social and political issues. Even in places that most people would never want to visit, there is a lot of charm to be found. I live in one of the world’s most beautiful countries, yet I have a desire to travel to… the most amazing planet known.
Trip in Pictures aspires to offer a mind trip in faraway or nearby places, mainly out of Europe, looking for the last traces of authenticity and traditions that have not yet been affected by westernization.
For image collectors
The further we travel, the more surprisingly different are the images we collect. Whether it’s in our memory or our digital film, we all capture images to keep for long. Most people take photos during their trips to preserve their memories, but sharing these images with others may be a relaxing mental vacation as well. Photography, however, is much more than that. As a form of art, it represents the creator’s meaning of expression, a depiction of the artist’s own perspective, and a story told by freezing a moment in time.
It’s interesting how you come to perceive things through the lens in such a different point of view while traveling! Observing small details and subtle nuances that you might not have noticed otherwise.
Trip in Pictures is a personal effort to present my work in travel photography, which is now an integral part of my every trip.
Through these images of places, people, moments that I have experienced, I hope we’ll trip together.
