Lukas Vasilikos (b. 1975, Crete, Greece)

Lukas is a prolific and versatile photographer whose almost obsessive dedication to the medium has helped him create an impressive body of work.  He started photography in 2006 and soon became an active figure in the burgeoning online street photography scene, winning various awards along the way. Beside his improvised street photographs, Lukas is also working on a more personal project exploring intimate family life, angst and loss.

In 2014 his work will be published in the new Gomma books influential album ‘Suture’, showcasing some of the top contemporary photographers. Lukas is a member of the “Depression Era” team of artists and writers that record the Greek crisis and will participate in an upcoming exhibition in 2014 at Palais de Beax Arts (Bozar), Belgium.
