THE PARTICIPANTS

Elpida

Hello!

My name is Elpida, I am 20 years old and I was born in a little town named Trikala, in Greece.

I love traveling and exploring new places, but my real passion is photography, that's why I studied at Akto College of art and design.

So, whats my aspiration?! To capture moments, to create memories for everyone to enjoy .

Andrea

 

I’m Andrea and I am 27. I've participated in Discover Lisbon 1.

I have a strong passion for photography and I think that only travelling a photographer can find his real himself.  

Pictures have a voice, and that voice always tells something about the photographer and I want to develop this ability. 

Sarah

I’m Sarah, and I’m 24 years old. For now I live in France, but I'll move to Australia at the end of the year. As you'll understand, I want to travel as much as I can. To me, photography is a way to capture this specific moment, this peculiar emotion, to keep it as pure and as vivid as possible in my mind. This is what I love so much about taking pictures. I've really started photography during the year I've spent in Portugal.

Everything there has been a fabulous source of inspiration for me, and this give me a strong will to discover the world and to be close to others cultures with my camera. I love to meet people from everywhere, to learn from them. I love to be surprise by the nature, to be captivated by the places around me. I feel so lucky to be a part of Discover Barcelona, I just can't wait until september, I am so impatient (this is one of my biggest flaw !). See you soon Barcelona!

more are coming soon....
