Project info

The photos of this project are of the an abandoned building, and more specifically of an old summer dance club outside Athens, Greece.
The club used to symbolize the Athen's night life, glamour and prosperity. Due to the crisis in Greece, both economic and social, the club was closed, became unoccupied and was not re-commercialized.
Now, it is the home of drug users and homeless people, whose the number has increased the last 7 years because of the crisis.
I use black and white photography because the subject is in focus, is stronger, gives more depth and dramatic effect. The documentary presents the depression, the lost of hope and the absence of color that followed the crisis.
