The garbage saints

The 24th anniversary of Giannis' work as a garbage collector in the trucks of the Municipality of Keratsini-Drapetsona. His daily struggle also reveals the secrets of the neighborhoods through their remnants. Life persists in an environment of homeless and stray animals, the experience of garbage, the terrifying climbing on the piles of garbage and the desperate struggle of human dignity for survival through the eye of poetic realism.
