Greece: Photo ‘Road Trip’ Around Europe Debt Crisis

Categories: Western Europe, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Citizen Media, Media & Journalism, Photography, Politics

We Are The Pigs [1]‘ – in reference to the derogatory PIGS acronym [2] – is a crowdfunded [3] photojournalism ‘road trip’ venture, to collect people's stories from European countries affected by the debt crisis. The project, started by two young Central European women journalists [4] frustrated with the stereotypical hyperbole and abuse levelled in the media against Greece and other crisis-ridden countries, will hit the road in early August, starting in Thessaloniki, Greece.
