Athens Tower (1971) – Architect Ioannis Vikelas
- International Photography Awards IPA 2012 - Honorable Mention -

A very dear photograph of mine, it marks the beginning of a new chapter in my work and life and was a big step towards discovering myself...

...ever since I was a kid I liked to imagine that a tall building could lead me past the clouds, right into the sky and I kept secretly hoping that I will someday find that building. I'm still looking for it and that's why, when I'm in the street, I always like to look up and see what's going on above myself, maybe I can discover it. I always found so fascinating how, if you stand in the right spot in front of a building, not too close, but not too far either, you can swear the wall going up is like a road to the sky. And I always liked to imagine that I can switch planes and walk on the building's walls just like I would walk on a horizontal surface. That's exactly what I wanted to do here, walk that white path and leave it take me from down here and drive me right up to the clouds....
