In May, AP reported how a Reuters photographer survived a snake attack to document the impact of Greece’s debt turmoil.
Greece had caught the eye of Reuters photojournalist Yannis Behrakis, who turned his lens on the country’s struggling industry after a six-year recession.

‘Ghost factories of Greece’ was part of Reuters’ The Wider Image project.
