My name is Makis Makris. I was born and have been residing in Kavala, Greece. I studied “Greek Civilization and Culture” alongside Graphic Arts on “Interior Decoration”.
My first steps into photography were in 2009, when i attended a photographic seminar which organized by the Photoclub of Kavala, of which i am an active member until now.
From January 2017 i also am a member of the BULB Photo Collective (Bucharest Urban League of photographers for the Balkans), which is based in Bucharest, Romania.
I have attended seminars and workshops by prominent photographers such as: Platon Rivellis, Eleni Mouzakiti and Petros Kotzabasis.
In 2019 i was one of the finalists of "I have a dream" - Photometria Awards | International Photography Festival (Ioannina, Greece)
In 2020 i won the Honourable Mention in the "Street Photography" category to the
Siena International Photo Awards.
On December 2020 my work has been selected to take part in PEP’s Photographic Exploration Project group exhibition «NEW TALENTS 2020», that has been held in BERLIN at B-Part Exhibition Gallery.
I have taken part in various group exhibitions as often in Greece as abroad and my photographic works have been displayed in both international and Greek online platforms and magazines.
