Thodoris Nikolaou


I was born in Chalkis, Greece in December 1982. My first interaction with investigative journalism comes in 2007 in the newspaper TA NEA (Lambrakis Press Group). I specialize in social reportage, focusing on migration and socially excluded groups.

Working for different newspapers, digital media and magazines I carry out missions in Greece and abroad, completing a series of researches and photography projects. For more than three years, I photograph and study Balkans, sponsored by the Onassis Foundation. Travelling in countries of the Balkan peninsula, my first goal is the making of a narration which will manage to synthesize a common fate between the people.

For me, human is always the center. Meanwhile, last years I write down with my lens the migrant flows of Balkans, travelling along with refugees and immigrants.
