Greece boasts an unrivalled historical and cultural legacy that is nowhere more apparent than in its capital, yet Athens also functions as a bustling, modern city. In this collection of striking black and white images, Vassilis Gonis manages to capture the paradox of life in a city full of contradictions, of crowded cafes and ancient ruins, age-old religious processions and big city sprawl. His walks through the city's streets are reflected here in engaging images of everyday life shot close-up and in sweeping panoramas of Athens taken from afar. Designed to fit in any briefcase or handbag, this portrait of one of the world's most important cities is the perfect keepsake for any traveler.
