Short Bio

I was born in Cyprus. I studied Engineering Sciences and MBA. When I first interested in photography I started to take some short courses and attend workshops. Mostly self thought at first, I wanted to have a formal education, so studied ‘Photography and Camera Operation’ in Anadolu University, Turkey. Now I continue my education on 'Photography and Video' in ARUCAD University in Cyprus.

I won many awards, had solo exhibitions and participated group exhibitions in the past years. I have been invited to 4th Biennial of Fine Art and Documentary Photography in Berlin in 2016 and to the Uppsala Fotofestival in Sweden in 2017. I have been invited to Imago Mundi project, Luciano Benetton Collection in 2018. My documentary 'The Wall' has been included in a group exhibition 'Walls of Power' in The Rencontres d'Arles, 2019.
