A Natural History of Destruction

A Natural History of Destruction on show in photobook form at the Athens Photo Festival June 14th to July 30th 2017 at the Benaki Museum (Pireos St. Annexe). The work centres on the destruction of Montecassino monastery and Cassino town (Italy, 1944) and the near disappearance of total destruction through abandonment, reconstruction and reclamation by nature today. In addition to the displaying of the book, three spreads were hung on the wall (above photo, rear right).
