The Hellenic Republic
Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, is a country in Southeast Europe.
According to the 2011 census, Greece’s population is around 11 million.
Modern Greece traces its roots to the civilization of Ancient Greece, considered the cradle of Western Civilization.
The cultural and technological achievements of Ancient Greece greatly influenced the world, both East and West.
More recently, Greece has suffered greatly from the late 2000s recession. The Greek government debt crisis, subsequent economic crisis and resultant protests have roiled domestic politics and have regularly threatened European and global financial markets since the crisis began in 2010.

In 2012, I was on location in Greece, documenting what I believed to be the latent and unobserved symptoms of the current recession.
The people I met along the way seemed very proud of their Greek heritage and determined to overcome the future challenges that lie ahead.
