Going out of Business, photo essay by Georgios Makkas

[W]ith Greece in its 6th year of recession, tens of thousands of small businesses have been forced to close and many more are likely to go the same way.
The Greek economy has shrunk by 25% in the last 5 years and this economic pressure is highly visible in many towns where up to half of all high street shops have closed.
Many of these shops were run by generations of merchants and with their closure an element of post-war Greek society – the family run store – is dying.
