after the fires
A few years back I returned from a photographic journey documenting the aftermath of the massive forest fires that took place throughout Peloponnesus.
Some of these firestorms were believed to be the result of arson while others were merely the result of negligence.
They paved a horrible precedent that put much of an ancient and sacred landscape at risk.
My intentions were to create photographs that shows the true lack of (re)growth and danger this country (and consequently, world) faces if these issues are not dealt with accordingly.
The parched landscape that has settled into it’s melancholic, starved state, has translated into imagery that makes Greeks, Greek-Americans and even the rest of this planet aware of the critical situations we face when dealing with ecology, climate change and politics.
