About the series: Shadow in Greece:
Greece has changed. You can spot the difference in every step, street and face. People creep through the cities like shadows – heads down, stiff shoulders, sealed lips.
Unemployment spreads doubts and fears and fuels insecurity and crime.
While the stock market falls, suicides are on a steady rise.
More people sleep on the streets, the stars form their blankets.
Even more people dive into dumpsters in search of food.
Despite their lives sharing similar paths, they still feel alone.
