George Georgiou

George Georgiou is a British freelance photographer and photojournalist whose work focuses on the transitioning of cities from small traditional villages to large modern cities.  His work also includes the communities stuck between different cultures within these cities. He also addresses how the cities are changing to all look the same.

George Georgiou was born in London in 1961. He graduated from Polytechnic of Central London and has taught at Barnet College in London.

He previously worked in black and white but moved to color for his new series Fault Lines:Turkey/East/West. The theme of this series came from observations he had made of new housing complexes that contrasted with the Anatolian Plateau. The series explores the idea of a division of east and west along with conflicting religions, and traditions, with modernity.
