The past two months, I volunteered as a photographer and assisted in the installation of exhibitions for Athens Photo Festival 2013. Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography and related media in South-eastern Europe. There, I met and interacted with eminent personalities in the field of photography, including international and national photographers, experts and influential people in the museum/fine art photography scene.
