difficult goddess

Athens, Greece is a standout city which fascinates and repels in equal measure. Much like the goddess Athena (patroness of the capital city), Athens can be rather unapproachable and lacking in compassion, but it is also vibrant and uniquely alluring.  It has always been a city of contradictions and extremes. Add the current crisis to that mix and you can see why one might need photography to make the big picture more manageable by breaking it up into smaller pieces.

It is my hope that one day I will have enough pieces of the puzzle to make up a complete picture of Athens, which is nothing if not multilayered, with layers both beautiful and ugly.
