Artūras Morozovas

Co-Founder, Photographer and Journalist


Artūras is a photographer and journalist and a co-founder of NARA (formerly Nanook) as well as the co-producer of the Russian-language podcast CoMeta.

Since 2007, Artūras has been observing and documenting significant Lithuanian and European political events. The crisis of migrants, Russia's military actions in Georgia and Ukraine, the processes in Russia itself and in the countries of the former Soviet bloc—these are the most prominent themes of Artūras' works. As a photojournalist, he is currently examining the problem of social exclusion and poverty in Lithuania and looking into the post-election situation in Belarus.

Artūras' work has been published in The Guardian, The New York Times, Der Spiegel, GEO, Al Jazeera, and elsewhere. Having obtained a bachelor's degree in art history, he is currently pursuing a master's degree in practical philosophy at Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas.

"I want to get to know things through journalism. Get to know people, society and political processes by participating in them. I am convinced that a journalist, in shaping public opinion, must themselves be among the people, to survive or to feel the problems they write about. Furthermore, a common sense of respect and responsibility is extremely important to me at work,” says Artūras.
