Born in northern Greece, Ilias started experimenting with the photographic medium at the age of 19.
After extensive travels in 2011, he stops his university studies and starts making pictures in an obsessive way.

Ηis main interest focuses on the basis of the current social and interpersonal issues about human nature. An approach based on Europe which started in 2012 in Greece and continues until now.
He is always questioning the body and the mind, always trying to reach and express the limits of oneself within all possible ways.

Ilias’s debut series of work named "Over.State" has been shown in various international festivals, solo and group shows across the world and has been featured in on-line and printed publications.

"Over.State" depicts the story of a young and lost person trying to feel free and find love. An emotional exploration of the "human condition". An effort to understand how we express freedom, intimacy, closeness; how we seek true connection with the inner self and the other – to understand the connection between darkness and light and to find a balance between the two.

In 2019, "Over.State" published as a monograph by Blow Up Press(Warsaw). Currently, Ilias is working on his new book titled "Vialattea".
