Grigoris Digas Greek research basedphotographer working in Svalbard


  • Instagram

Dr. Grigoris Digas is a research-based photographer, born and currently based in Thessaloniki, Greece. His research interests revolve around notions of boundaries, displacement and exile in a political and cultural context. He chooses and approaches his subjects through these concepts, using the landscape and its inherent cultural characteristics as an allegory. The narratives he creates are subjective and personal, emphasizing the experience of the landscape, but also analytical through the research they have behind them. Digas works in long-term projects which are usually conceived and carried out in book forms.
