Day X is a series of 5 publications, each featuring a one-day collaboration between a writer and a photographer working in Europe.
Book number two in our Day X series is "Screen" by photographer Nikolas Ventourakis and poet Theodoros Chiotis.
Nikolas' searching photographs and Theodoros' haunting poetry emerged from a sleepless perambulation for one day and it's night through Athens, a city redolent of a powerful history and marked by the predicaments of the present. A 24 hour transport ticket for the Athens public transport network provided the frame.
