Manolis is a street and documentary photographer originated from Leros island, Greece. Born in 1995, discovered his passion for photography when he came of age and from that moment on he embarked on a journey that has taken him to over 40 countries, documenting the everyday lives of people from all walks of life.

His street photography captures the raw and unfiltered moments of everyday life in cities around the world, seeking to find the extraordinary within the ordinary. In his portraits, he tries to connect the viewers with the emotions and experiences of his subjects. Each portrait tells a unique story, revealing the essence of the individual before his lens. While street photography and portraits are at the core of his art, he is not confined to a single style. He often explores other forms of photography, including conceptual photography that challenges conventions and encourages viewers to think deeply.
