PHOTOGRAPHERS/ Niko J. Kallianiotis

Niko J. Kallianiotis is a Pennsylvania-based educator and photographer. He was born in Greece, where he spent his formative years, but has lived in the United States for all his adulthood. Because of his hybrid background, he views the world and his surrounding environs from two different perspectives, both culturally and socially. With photography he is attempting to comment on his cultural dichotomy: the decision on the use of colour, light, and form is of ultimate importance and plays a significant role in his representing himself.


He started his career as a newspaper photographer, first as a freelancer at The Times Leader in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and then as a staff photographer at The Coshocton Tribune in Coshocton, Ohio, and The Watertown Daily Times in Watertown, New York. He is currently teaching at Drexel University in Philadelphia, and he is a contributing photographer for The New York Times.
