Nikos Zompolas

I was born in Greece (in 1964) and I live and work in Luxembourg.

My engagement in photography involves research of Steichen Collection and work on long-term projects that reflect my interest in social and environmental topics, and storytelling photography.

I have shown my work in solo exhibition in Luxembourg and in several collective exhibitions, salons and festivals around Europe. My work has been featured in top web magazine including Lensculture, L'oeil de la photographie, PHmuseum and others. Several of my photographs have won international awards, among others, the FLPA’s Coupe du Patrimoine Luxembourgeois.
