DIMITRIS MAKRYGIANNAKIS, SWEDEN/INDIA
I am born in 1979, originally from Greece, living in Sweden the last 9 years. I work as a medical doctor. I am interested in photography and in particular street photography since almost 3 years. I love walking around in the streets and capture moments that will never exist again.
I have a huge interest in travelling and photographing in Asia, mostly in India but have also been in Thailand, Burma, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Nepal and Qatar. I think that Asian countries give many photographic opportunities. Of course it is difficult to see beyond the touristic when first arriving, this is why I keep coming back and spend long periods, especially in India, to become more and more familiar with the country and its people.
I spent from December 2011 until now more than 8 months in those countries, 5 of those months in India.
