Intrepid explorers in Athens

Cat stories Around Athens Acropolis

Greece | Thursday, 4 July 2013 | 5 photos

I am Phoebe, I am an architect, but when I grow up I will be a photographer. I grew up in the sunniest place of Greece, Rhodes. In 2000, my brother gave me his camera, to take a picture and that was it! I will never forget the sound of my first camera “click”. Due to the economic crisis in Greece, for the past 4 years I’ve been working in a company involved in design of water distribution systems. Its day by day that I can see clearly that only photography can make me happy. I consider myself to be a person that can stand and walk through difficult situations, maybe difficult is my specialty. Now I know that my life target is photography. What I try to do is to be a traveler in the city I live in. I have some standards that I can’t overcome, these are my favorite places in Athens,Acropolis and Plaka, and each time I walk at these places, each time I smell the vegetation on the hill of Acropolis and watch new people discovering my city, I make up new stories and when I happen to have my camera with me, then they become photo- stories and that’s what excites me more. If I win this prize and travel to Greenland, my whole (photo) life will change, and that’s exactly what I’m after.
