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.”
