About me

Colònia Castells

Freelance Photojournalist based in Essen, Germany.

I grew up in Ioannina, Greece where I got my first job as a photographer assistant. A couple of years later, I left my parents, my friends and my band behind and I moved to Florence, Italy to study photography.
After countless black & white film rolls and many hours inside the darkroom, I found myself in Barcelona studying photojournalism and working as an assistant.

When I finished my studies, I moved back to my hometown and started working as a photographer for local newspapers and press agencies.

Since 2013 I live and work in Germany.
