Overview :
Petros Giannakouris is a Greek Photojournalist working for the Associated Press and living in Athens. The crisis faced by Greece in the aftermath of the financial collapse of 2007–08 left Petros in the middle of a problem.  

Seminar

Details

“Whenever I covered emotionally draining stories such as Wars or Europe’s Refugee Crisis, I was faced with documenting other people’s problems but I always had a nice and peaceful home to return to in Athens where I could spend time and mentally recover. That was always when the story stopped being my problem, as I went back to a normal daily life.

But when the top global story moved to Athens, to my surprise and sadness I witnessed more widespread street violence – always a very demanding story for the photojournalist. More demanding than ever before in my life. Greece’s economic crisis had a drastic impact on myself, my family, friends, neighbours and all the Greek people, yet I had to report it with an ice-cold detachment and maintain objectivity.”
