About Lefteris Partsalis
Lefteris Partsalis was born in 1987 in Athens, where he spent the first 18 years of his life. In 2004, he bought his first camera and pursued photography as a hobby. 16 years later, he is an established photographer who has covered major news and feature stories, including the Greek economic crisis, the refugee crisis, civil unrests, the Mosul offensive and many more.
Partsalis studied landscape architecture, but even during his studies he was working as a photographer on environmental projects.
Since 2015, Partsalis has been contributing as a freelance photographer to various media outlets and press agencies, and works on a permanent basis for CNN Greece and Chinese News Agency Xinhua. In 2015 he took the picture of three old ladies bottle-feeding a refugee baby in Lesvos; one of them was nominated for the Nobel peace prize in 2016.
