Ilias has been one of those teachers that let you explore more and more of yourself, without ever restraining you. He was the one that taught me to search for the poetry floating all around and made me trying to capture it through a camera. His point of view in life and in art opens a wide window of possibilities, especially if you are searching for a new path. I couldn’t be more grateful to have met him as a person and as a teacher!
This photographic work is mostly an attempt to connect. To connect better with the world around and the world inside. With all that grows. With nature and people. And maybe, just maybe, even explore the special bond between the two of them. The bond that has always been there, but we tend to forget.
