Down and Out in Athens - 06 June 2013
Athens based photographer Yannis Behrakis spent several weeks documenting the unemployed and homeless in Greece as the economic downturn starts to impact the homeless numbers. Since the debt crisis erupted in 2009, hundreds of thousands of Greeks have lost their jobs and the unemployment rate in the country reached 26.8 percent in March, new figures show. Klimaka, a nongovernmental organisation, estimated there were around 20,000 homeless in Greece in 2012.
