Alexandros Demetriades was born in 1967 in Nicosia, Cyprus. In 1984, he moved with his family to the U.S. He later completed a BA in Business and Economics, and an MBA in Finance and Investments at George Washington University in Washington D.C. In 1996, he formed a cross-disciplinary design firm, where he acted as Creative and Art Director. In 2009, Alexandros studied cinematography at New York University. Upon graduating, he returned to Cyprus to commit to photography professionally and embarked on a personal photographic journey documenting his homeland for a period of more than two years. In the meantime, he also traveled to the Balkans, the Middle East and North Africa covering both newsworthy events but also personal projects. Alexandros' second long term project "The Color of Scars" is an ongoing project that deals with life during and after the Arab Spring revolutions.
Alexandros has received numerous awards, including from B&W Magazine, International Photography Awards, Photo Annual Awards and Sigma Annual Photography; in 2012, he was nominated from the Terry O'Neil Award. His work has been published in the International Herald Tribune, The New York Times, New York Times Lens Blog, Leica Fotografie International, B&W magazine, Vervephoto: a new breed of documentary photographers, amongst others. He is currently working as a freelance photographer.
