thePhotoShow is a podcast about photographers and photography

"Oh you know, Robert Frank did this or you know Soth did this, it doesn't really matter who did it, it's what you are going to put into it. Are you passionate about it, and is this part of your life experience?…"

Niko J. Kallianiotis makes photographs of places he has lived in the United States both as someone who has lived here for half of his life and as someone who grew up in Greece. His work is both reactionary and commentary. He has witnessed the economic rise and falls in both his hometown of Scranton, PA and in his homeland of Greece. His work explores the social landscape of the places he has lived and visited while exploring his identity in both cultures.

This episode sponsored by the School of Visual Arts MFA Photography, Video, & Related Media - Charles Traub, Chair.
