Nicola by Luke 24 8 2021 BW.JPG


Nicola Lanciotti (b.1988) is an Italian documentary photographer and journalist based in Copenhagen, Denmark.


Nicola’s personal and professional interest is mostly on social, cultural and political issues in the Middle East and North Africa.


After graduating at The Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX), Nicola’s work has focused on Tunisia. Beside following the deteriorating political situation, he has worked on the persisting marginalisation of youth, an issue that led to the revolution of 2010 and today manifest itself with the migration through the Central Mediterranean route.


Nicola’s personal work is research based. The journalistic approach gives him the chance to fulfil his personal curiosity about the subject as well as allowing him to tell the story in a deep and confidential manner.

His visual language is silent and thoughtful. He looks for the quiet moment to get close to his subjects and portray them in an intimate way.
