Summary: This is a story of returning to an unidentifiable past. The sense of age, tiredness and misery of a familiar place when viewed with fresh eyes, coming back from a youthful, blossoming and hopeful alternative. The difficulty of fitting in again. And all this amidst a continent-wide crisis of epic proportions, stretching beyond financial woes to insecurity, xenophobia and depression. A personal project and view of course.

Date and place of birth of photographer/s: 12 December 1976, Athens, Greece
