Kariko started working at ECU in 2010, after 8 years of teaching at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL. 

Kariko’s images investigate environmental and political aspects of landscape, use of land and cultural interpretation of inhabited space. He worked on several long-term photographic projects in his homeland of Serbia, recording the aftermath of the war in Balkans. Since 1999 Kariko documented the endangered wetlands and dramatic changes in the landscape in Barataria- Terrebonne region of South Louisiana. Some of his latest projects deal with the issue of foreclosed housing in Florida, and documentation of the oil spill in Louisiana wetlands. For his current project, Kariko is working collaboratively with a scientist on Scanning Electron Images of common household pests.
