Chrysostomos Galathris was born at Samos island and lives in Athens.
From a very young age he was charmed by imagery. He took pleasure in drawing and was always mesmerized by colors, shapes and pattern. His initial attempts in drawing were gradually developed in a desire to capture and depict the moment which led him in photography. What fascinated him the most was the realization that photography is a way of seizing 'eternity'.
He studied in FOCUS ART SCHOOL OF ATHENS and graduated in 2012.He has displayed 4 personal exhibitions so far. Pictures from his journey in China in 2010 and Aroma Polis in 2012 which depicts his impression of the multicultural Constantinople.
