‘Kleinoume’ - ‘We are closing’ 

I have been photographing Arta, Greece for more than a dozen years. This year its clear that the ‘crisis’ has finally hit home. Shops that have been clinging on by their fingernails have had to close, there is a poster for a soup kitchen outside the main church, Chinese boys playing football outside the ‘cheap Chinese stuff’ shop, immigrants dirty clothes hung outside an evicted squat…. This cannot go on….. you cannot recover from a debt crisis by austerity and  recession, externally imposed it is immoral.
