About the Artist:

Born in Düsseldorf, raised between Athens and Santorini Thus came the 3 years of studies in Focus (Athens), seminars in the Photographic Society (Athens) and about a year of seminars in London (London School of Photography) Starting from street photography and clubbing photos for travel and musical forms, I discovered my passion for reportage stories (greek and international press – Geo, Eleftheros Typos, Eleftherotypia, Athinorama Travel, Conde Nast Traveller Greece,etc), followed by a 2 years `duty` at the Athens Olympic Committee 2004 as a Photo Editor (among others), Director of Photography for the summer campaign of the Piraeus Prefecture (2007) and occasional partnerships with private property companies in the Greek islands and the Alps. Since late 2009 I am based in Vienna, Austria, where I cover mainly live music bands & concerts, combining travel reportage cover stories and portraits for Austrian and other international press. Several years of photographic experience has covered both still life and portraits with a specialization in reportage, cover stories and live music concerts. Publications in respectful weekly & monthly publications in Greece and abroad. www.christinakaragiannis.com
