Heavily influenced by painting and considering cameras as his paintbrushes, Kyriakos Kaziras is a Greco/French photographer known for his pictorial approach. Born in Greece, he developed an interest in art under his two grandfathers' influence – one an artist and the other a keen amateur photographer. When Kaziras was 16, his family moved to Geneva, where he learned French. After that, he moved to France, studying French literature at Sorbonne. The turning point in his career occurred during his first trip to southern Africa – he immediately fell in love with the light, animals, and the intensity of the veldt. He hasn't stopped traveling since, visiting some of the most remote corners of the globe, from polar regions to African plains. Kyriakos Kaziras is based in France.
