Personal Best: Betty Manousos

Betty is a street and social documentary photographer currently based in Athens, Greece, founder/editor of CUT and DRY Blogzine, and a member of the Photographic Circle collective.

She holds a Business Administration and Marketing Degree. She captures scenes of street life and urban environments and has recently turned to the use of color. Her work has been published in print and digital magazines as well as featured on several photo-related sites such as Photographize 2019, Wonderzofphotography 2019, Photographic Mercadillo 2018, e.t.c.

Artist’s Statement:

I strongly believe that street photography undoubtedly affects our capacity to empathize; also, it can help us connect with people worldwide in that way. And that’s so important.

My photographic vision focuses on capturing the essence of a person, the feeling, the soul and spirit of a city, the everyday life as it evolves in urban and rural environments.

What I photograph is defined by what I believe in.
