Most of the photos in this page are not mine. They are photos that I liked or I found interesting. I don't have any right on these photos, I haven't asked for that neither.. They are simply pages of a newspaper, magazine or book and I kept them in an album. Many thanks to various medias and agencies -in particular TIME, FT, AP, AFP, Reuters, GETTY Images, to individual photographers, museums, journals - in particular NYT and Kathimerini, web magazines and websites - in particular LensCulture, and many others.
