Lydia's mother, Lia in my office posing a month before the delivery day. A month later Lia gave me the strongest moment of my life.

Lefteris Partsalis was born in Athens in 1987, where he spent the first 18 years of his life. In 2004, he bought his first camera and pursued photography as a hobby; more than 10 years later he is an established photographer who has covered major stories including the Greek financial crisis, the refugee crisis, civil unrests, Mosul offensive and more. Since 2015, Partsalis works as a freelancer for various media. In 2015 he took the picture of three grandmothers in Lesvos feeding a baby migrant and one of them nominated for Nobel prize.
