Snapshots from Greece

I’ve put together one thousand words and seventeen photographs from my time in Athens and Heraklion. This piece began as a brief photo-essay that juxtaposed graffiti with the ruins of the past but it quickly unraveled into a sprawling meditation on the life-cycle of civilizations—a question which seems more pressing as the world continues to flirt with authoritarian dogma wrapped in the guise of working-class populism. While the spectacle of Donald Trump’s inauguration was a hideous sight for any rational person, it was particuarly bizarre to contemplate this while standing before the ruins of the Agora. Read The Sacred and Profane.
