Earlier last year, I was invited to the 18th edition of the « Balkan Hair and Make Up Festival » hosted in Thessaloniki. This is where I met the gorgeous Liberty. She was wearing this amazing dress made entirely out of newspaper. I placed her under an awning where I knew I had absolute control of the direction of the light. I took a few shots and the stars line up on this one. This portrait is not just about being in the right place at the right time but knowing what to do when you find yourself there. I would like to thank my friend and photography colleague Alexandros Giovanis who participated in the elaboration of this portrait.
