We speak to 1st Runner Up George Digalakis #photography #Athens #Greece #landscapephotography #photocontest


George Digalakis was born and raised in Athens, Greece, where he still lives today. His first contact with photography was back in 1974, when he received a “Nettar” as a gift from his father. However, it was only in 2011 when he first studied photography at “Photoeidolo”, and became acquainted with classic and contemporary photographers, that he realized this medium would offer him a gateway from reality, and enable him to express his inner world.His true love for the art of photography was finally conveyed.

“The reason I took part in the competition, is the opportunity to show my work in London, one of the major cultural centers in Europe. The fact that I did win the 2nd prize, gives me confidence and  is a great encouragement to continue my efforts in creating beautiful images.”

You can see more of his work here.
