Eirini Vourloumis was born and raised in Athens, Greece and is of Greek and Indonesian background. Vourloumis is a graduate of Parsons School of Design and of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York.
She began her career as a contributing photographer for the New York Times Metro section and is currently freelancing for various international publications from Greece, focusing on covering the ongoing economic crisis. She has also contributed as a writer for Lens, the New York Times photojournalism blog.
Her current personal work has shifted from pure reportage and combines a documentary and conceptual photographic approach, in which she explores social and political environments to reflect their dynamic within the context of the economic crisis in her home country.
The British Journal of Photography included Vourloumis in their 2015 "One's to Watch" issue and Photo Booth of the New Yorker recognized Vourloumis as an Emerging Photographer in 2014. Her current project ‘In Waiting’ has been exhibited at the Bozar museum in Brussels as part of a group show on Contemporary Greek Art in Times of Crisis. Her reportage work has been published in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Time, Le Monde, Business Week, The Guardian, and Kathimerini among others.
