Petros Poulidis arrived in Athens in 1903, deported from Constantinople, where he had gone from Souli to study, bringing with him a wooden photographic box with plaques, which he had purchased there in 1900. Along with his camera Poulidis had brough to Greece a new profession: the photographic reportage. From that period onwards, Poulidis collaborated with 'Embros' of Kalapothakis, 'Patrida' of Simos and 'Script' of Efstratiadis and published his photographs there. Until his death in 1958, he documented nearly all of the events of modern Greek history.
