Constantina Peppa
Photographer

I was born in Athens. I’ve studied Counseling Psychology, but I’ve always been into photography and in 2014 I completed my studies in photography at Leica Academy in Athens, Greece.

Albania is a small Balkan country that has suffered a lot and has tried hard to leave behind its disturbing political past. Today, Albania is part of the UNO, NATO and other international organizations and is also one of the many candidate countries to join the European Union. Its capital city of Tirana is the country’s modern face. Tirana is a city that can be characterized as a place of many contradictions and a place that has not escaped its past.

The main goal of this project is to show the everyday life of Albania in different places in the country.

Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
