Thanasis Lomef Zacharopoulos was born in the small town of Xanthi in north Greece.
In 1990 a New Years Eve was initiated to the secrets of aperture and shutter speed, and the experimentation with photography started.
Soon, discovered that both his grand father Nestor Lomef and his great uncle Dimitrios Zacharopoulos were taking photographs already in the 30s.
Using that as an alibi started to spend his evenings in the (converted wardrobe) dark room.
