According to Enetenglish, Burnout derives from the psychology’s field. “Burnout means ‘occupational exhaustion’. The crisis has given the elite a golden opportunity to impoverish the working class and wipe out the middle class, forgetting that the wealth we all enjoy is produced by workers. We live in a system that has everything, but not for everyone,” the photographer said.
“People looked in confusion, they were startled, as if they didn’t expect to see images of this kind. Maybe that’s because they only see images of demonstrations and riots in Syntagma.

Shocking photographs and unique portraits of Athens dominate the Greek photographer’s exhibition. Michalakis has been also well known due to his presence at the Made in Athens participation of Greece at the Venice Architecture Biennale.
