Kamil Zihnioglu is a French/German photojournalist freelancing for the international agencies Associated Press and Sipa Press.
Born in Paris, I grew up in the outskirts of Paris and in the South of France, where I took up photography. In 2013, I moved to Berlin to complete an internship at the former news agency DAPD and at BILD Zeitung. I returned to Paris in 2014, where I am now based.
Past assignments include a long term project on the last days of François Hollande's presidency, named "Epilogue", the Paris Attacks in November 2015, the 2017 French presidential coverage, the Cannes Film Festival and various news assignments around Europe.
