Kossikoff was born in 1898 in Kharkoff, White Russia, he escaped to North Africa after the Russian Revolution and later to Paris. During his stay in Paris Nikolaï Kossikoff came into contact with the avant-garde art movement of the Twenties.

In 1923 he arrived in Ghent where he first worked as an artist painter in the restauration works of churches. Only in 1935 he took back up his old hobby of photography, now in order to survive. Being self-educated he developed his own technique and style.

From 1935 until the Second World War he worked on the documentary of the port of Ghent. He stopped with photography in 1954 and died in 1975 in Ghent.

The archive of Kossikoff is in the Antwerp Museum of Photography. On the internet you can find the auction results for his photography
