In Ruins: The Fall of Greek Industry





In 2009, the financial crisis hit Greece and left the northern region of Thrace with fewer than 10 working factories and an unemployment rate of 50 percent. Thrace’s industrial zone—once a constant stream of activity—was now littered with abandoned buildings and factories.

Nikos Pilos documents this catastrophic loss by photographing industrial ruins in Thrace. Like a ghost town, buildings are empty of people but still contain decorations or office equipment, evoking the feeling that the employees left in a hurry with little forewarning of the crisis to come.

“In Ruins: The Fall of Greek Industry” is featured as part of the Open Society Documentary Photography Project’s Moving Walls 21 group exhibition.
