Costantinos Pittas was born in Athens, Greece. He studied engineering at the Technical University of Athens. On 1984 he started photographing in the streets of his native city and by the end of that year he had completed his first project on Athens. In the next few years he traveled extensively in Eastern and Western Europe, photographing people on both sides of the Wall. On 1989 he abandoned this project and photography as well, and "buried" his work for 25 years. In 2014, completely by chance, he discovers his old photos in his storeroom. In 2015 he publishes his book, the "Images of another Europe".
