Life is Alive is a project which was started in autumn 2010 until spring 2012. For almost 2 years i was documenting the lives of elderly people living in a nursing home in Thessaloniki, Greece. Photographing strangers in their natural environment was challenging, but I accepted it without a second thought. Photography is a way for me to discover new places and meet unknown people. Getting in touch with these people was very convenient despite their issues with age, mainly due to the fact that they love to mingle with people outside the world/walls of their nursing homes. Personally, I believe that its very important to interact with the elderly, because it brought memories of my childhood and the lives of my grandparents, moments that were deprived due their early demise.
