In 1974, George Digalakis received a “Nettar” as a present from his father. From that day forward, the camera has followed him everywhere he goes. However, being a doctor by trade, he had to wait until the year 2009 to find the free time necessary to seriously study the inner workings of photography. He took an online course and quickly became an accomplished photographer. Photography thus offered him the escape he had been looking for in order to express all of his creativity. Born in a country that has nearly 6 000 islands, George Digalakis maintains a special relationship with the sea. In each of his works, the sea occupies the role of the canvas on which his many subjects come to life. Through his shots, the Greek photographer does not seek to tell stories but rather to convey emotions, in particular that of melancholy.
