Athens | A Financial Crisis by Louis Martins Photography
2012, Athens, Greece
In late 2011 Greece was embroiled in a major financial crisis. The people of Greece had embarked on a prolonged and relentless series of protests in Syntagma Square in central Athens. I took this as an opportunity to cover a foreign period of civil unrest and ventured out to Athens with a colleague. During the course of a week I attended day and night protests which were some of the most tense and exciting I had attended in my career to date. The Greek riot police were everywhere, spot searches were in place and tension was in the air. The link below will take you to the full photographic collection:
