About 10 days ago I flew to Thessaloniki, Greece to meet with street photographer Yiannis Yiasaris. I was really looking forward to meeting Yiannis, because we have been communicating online for more than a year now, getting to know each other as photographers and as people. So it felt as if I was going to see a friend I hadn’t seen in years! I hadn’t been to Thessaloniki since 1997 and it was as beautiful as I remembered it, if not more. It is the second largest city of Greece after Athens and in my opinion the most interesting. The people are friendly and welcoming and they love anything concerning arts and culture, be it photography, music, design – anything that can spark creativity. The wider metropolitan area is nearly 1,000,000 people while the actual municipality of Thessaloniki is around 400,000. So, it has the ideal amount of people to class it as a city, but not an overcrowded faceless one. You will get a chance to see parts of the city in the Street Hunt video we recorded. I am sure that you will enjoy the tasks Yiannis and I set ourselves as well as the views of the seafront.
