Giannis Robokos was born in 1972 in Athens and grew up in Krines, Corinth. He studied Statistics at Athens University of Economics and Business (formerly ASOEE). He has been dealing with photography in his artistic practice since 2013, attending courses organized by the Municipality of Maroussi. Usually, his images are moments that he captures on the streets. His photographic obsession is to discover the beautiful side of the dark and depressing urban landscape. He believes that by observing the most insignificant information on the streets, you can, through the lens of the camera, highlight and tell stories that tell little jokes, that talk about social problems, that express your deepest thoughts.
