Kyriakos Kaziras is a professional photographer who was born in Greece and now lives in France. He has specialized in nature photography (fauna, ethnography and landscapes).
His passion for photography and painting began at an early age, thanks to the influence of his two grandfathers, one an artist and the other a keen amateur photographer. His family moved to Geneva when he was 16, where he learned French. He then went to university in France, where he studied French literature at the Sorbonne.
During his first trip to southern Africa, he fell in love with the immensity of the veldt, the light and the animals. Since then he has never stopped travelling to Africa, and to the most remote corners of the planet. His travels are an occasion for endless encounters with local populations and wild animals.
He draws inspiration from light, the search for emotion and encounters. Highly influenced by painting, Kyriakos Kaziras has a very pictorial approach to photography. The cameras are his paintbrushes.
As a privileged witness of the world’s beauty, his moving, poetic photographs enable us to share his fascination for wildlife. They reflect the magnificence of the scenery and the splendour of the fauna.
Kyriakos Kaziras is the photographer of the instant, perpetually seeking the precise moment when an emotion is felt. His photos give us a special and ever original view of the beauty of the world and of nature.
