A passion that comes to him from his earliest childhood, as he confided on the set of It’s up to you, last April. “I did that at the table (he mimics the gesture). My father asked ‘why does he take pictures without a camera?’. In fact, me I was photographing because I had seen black and white photos of my parents and my grandparents. At the time, people didn’t smile because photography was considered an act, a signature almost a social act. Seeing my young parents without smiling caused me an emotion. That’s why I wanted to keep people alive“, he had explained.
The mania that annoys Tina Grigoriou

The price of passion!
