Photographer's Note

A young child pushing his father, with the wheelchair to play the pipe and gather coins for living. As the man told me the government cause the crisis stopped providing him the retirement (he was with one leg) and he didn't have money to pay the electricity so they cut it off. The child instead of kindergarten or school was with his father. He should be playing with other children that time, but no... In the same state of Evros is the borderline with Turkey, where everyday thousands of people are passing illegal the borders under very very bad conditions. Poverty inside and indifference for people out of the European borders. This is the European Union in the 21st century!
