While traveling in Greece, Dutch photographer Patrick van Dam noticed unfinished buildings and homes spotting the countryside. They looked spectacular, he said, but they didn’t look like they’d be finished anytime soon.
Plants were creeping in on the structure sides. Stray dogs and squatters, not the owners, were calling them “home.”
He had seen the photographs of people in despair due to the financial crisis in Greece, but he hadn’t seen this kind of structural beauty that had been born in the country’s troubles.
