20 × 24 inches (51 × 61 cm)

In early August, when The New York Times Magazine reached out to me about documenting ancient Athenian ruins and other monuments to accompany an article by Thomas Chatterton Williams.

Over the course of just a few weeks, a small team of two assistants and I woke up each morning to climb up the Acropolis before sunrise in order to capture what is left of the stunning citadel.
