Niko J. Kallianiotis was born in Greece and is an educator and photographer based in Pennsylvania. His formative years were spent in Greece, but for all of his adulthood he lived in the United States. Because of his hybrid background he views the world and his surrounding environs from two different perspectives, both culturally and socially. Expatriation was not his personal decision, but his current photographic language is. With photography he is attempting to comment on his cultural dichotomy; the decision of use of color, light, form, and humor is of ultimate importance and plays a significant role in representing himself. Like our daily life experiences and moods, those entities are a fluctuating variable that is represented on a two-dimensional surface.

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 an Assistant Professor of Photography at Marywood University in Scranton, PA and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He is also a member of OramaPhotos.gr and a contributing photographer for The New York Times.
