to date he has been teaching Photography and Photography
Editing for the Adult Education Program run by the Psychico
Athens College. He has presented his works in individual as

Throughout my artistic career, both the designing clarity and the
power of synthesis have constituted the basic characteristic as
well as the core of my work. Through the systematic and
analytic study of nature, light, shape and volume, I have
gradually established my very personal creative way of
expression materialized mostly by means of strong architectural
and geometric structures.
Still lifes, syntheses of objects but also nature related themes,
are all designed and combined conforming to this strict
geometric structure, combined with imaginary elements and
forms, which result from the analytic and designing needs of
each work. For the production of the abovementioned works,
mixed materials are always used, often including the technique
of collage which supports, both in terms of design and
expression, the architectural style characterizing the works.
