Todd Rigos studios

Todd Rigos (b.1987) is a contemporary photographer from Athens, Greece, whose work explores notions of intimacy, identity, and human interaction. Through curiosity, observation and presence he seeks to witness and document patterns between people, nature, the things we consume and the milieus in which we live. He started developing his personal work in 2009 and his self-taught skills extend across digital and analogue photography. Since then, he has been recognized through several awards and has exhibited in numerous shows in Greece and around the globe. In 2019 he attended the Documentary, Photo Journalism & Studio program at Spéos International Photographic Institute & Magnum Photos in Paris, France. Upon graduation, he focused on the humanitarian field documenting the lives of refugees while trying to bring action through awareness, and make a difference in the world through his work.

In summer of 2022 he opened his personal art space “Todd Rigos Studios & Galleries” in Akadimia Platonos in Athens, Greece. A multipurpose art space dedicated for photography, exhibitions, workshops, presentations, events and more.
