”Every time a new year starts I feel the need to start the year with a good photo, it is kind of a very pleasant feeling when it happens. So this is from the 6th of January 2019. I don't know how the rest of the year will be, but I am happy it started that way.”

This is how Dimitris recalls the taking of this photograph.
" I found this old man on the major touristic spot of Prague, Charle's bridge in June 2015. Found this photo looking in my archives recently, almost had forgotten it existed. His face, I don't remember any more. But those eyes stroke me from the very beginning I saw him. After taking the photo and continuing my photo walk, I could not but keep thinking of the greek philosopher Diogenes. A modern Diogenes? A story far more tragic? Every time I look at those eyes, they tell me another story."
