About Athina


- Born in Patras in 1986
- Finished her Bachelor Degree in Greek Philology in 2009 (University of Patras), followed by a Master Degree in Language Studies in 2010 (Lancaster University, U.K.)
- Left her Ph.D. Degree after 5 years of study (University of Athens), for all the reasons of the world, grateful for the broad knowledge she gained throughout the process.

Στις ασπρόμαυρες φωτογραφίες, άλλοι θα δουν το μαύρο κι άλλοι το άσπρο, το μαύρο για τα δεσμά, το άσπρο για το πέταγμα. Άλλοι θα δουν τις σηκωμένες γροθιές κι άλλοι τα λυγισμένα γόνατα. Άλλοι τα γέλια, άλλοι τα κλάματα. Άλλοι τα σίδερα ριγμένα κάτω, άλλοι τα σώματα. Πέφτοντας τα σίδερα στα σώματα πέσαν κι εκείνα κάτω. Άλλοι την ήττα κι άλλοι τη νίκη. Στις ίδιες ασπρόμαυρες φωτογραφίες, κάποιοι θα γυρίσουν απ’ την άλλη, και κάποιοι, θα στυλώσουνε το βλέμμα τους για ώρα, κάποιοι θα θυμώσουν, κάποιοι θα βουρκώσουν. Θα είναι όμως κι οι τρελοί, που στις φωτογραφίες θα δούνε μόνο κόκκινο, θα βγουν να...
