Greece stands on the threshold of change after the economic chrash in 2008 left the country in a lot of trouble. Greece became a victim of economical plots to dump debt in the countries financial systems and on top of the difficulties Greece is facing it became the gateway for reefugees traveling to europe. Greece has opened up it´s arms and are truly trying to help but are we trying to help Greece or are we taking advantage of the situation.


This is an ongoing project.

The Olympic stadiums

In the Olympic stadiums in Athens there was a big refugee camp when I was there, it was closed to the public. The area was guarded by police and private security and you could sense a strange vibe coming from the people. The camps were changing in to so called “hotspot” from a “Welcoming centre” and the people was waiting to be processed. It was a tense time to visit the Olympic grounds as the deal between the EU and Turkey was on the table to deal with the refugee crisis.
