“Welcome to Paradise” is written on the entrance sign… imagine a green valley lost somewhere on the amazing nature of Hungary. A valley waiting for once every year, a festival which will fill it with electronic music and wonderful people from every corner of this Earth! A celebration of life itself, the freedom, the individuality, peace and love… welcome to Ozora festival!
I was lucky to be there on 2006 and left with the feeling that I had experienced one of the best and most genuine festivals in my life. So I went back on 2008, 2009 and 2010 to dance under the sun and connect with the spirit and energy of the people who gather there every year. I tried to capture it with my lens and this photobook is the result of my photos, in 120 pages trying to transmit a bit of the amazing experience and further more, depict how the festival has evolved these last few years. In addition, is my way to say thank you to all the wonderful people who make this festival happen, from the organizers and the artists to the beautiful smiling crowd. Enjoy and see you again on the dancefloor…
Being a mixed child I had to board airplanes and go to distant places from my childhood age. But not until the end of my teens I discovered my real passion for traveling. Graduated from Business Administration faculty in Athens made me realize that luxury, a successful career and making lots of money is definitely not the path to happiness. Fascinated by the new horizons traveling revealed me, I tried to capture the moments and experiences through photography and video. Either being a festival, a place in nature, industrial scenery, animals, a spiritual place, historical landmarks, every place you visit fills you with different emotions and thoughts. These emotions I try my best to capture and share, hope you'll enjoy my work :)
