Nikos Economopoulos

In the Balkans
by Nikos Economopoulos
Publisher's Description
The Balkan Peninsula--Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, Bosnia-Hercegovina, The Republic of Macedonia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, and Montenegro--has for centuries been the site of territorial, religious, and ethnic warfare. In spite of this fragmentation, the cultures themselves are surprisingly similar. Greek photographer Nikos Economopoulos documents the people of the different countries in an extraordinary and haunting way, revealing the inextinguishable spirit which persists in all of them despite the perpetual volatility of their lives. His vision lends a unified clarity to the time-warped mentality of life in the Balkans.
