Niklas Grapatin is a photographer based in Hamburg, Germany. In 2011 he began his studies of photojournalism- and documentary photography in Hanover, followed by an internship as a staff photographer at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. In 2017 he went to Bangladesh to continue his studies at Pathshala South Asian Media Institute in Dhaka, under the guidance of Munem Wasif.
