Opakh Thrace: Terra Incognita
by Nikos Economopoulos
Magnum presents Nikos Economopoulos' revelatory book published from work culled from his travels from the 1990s in Thrace, the region comprised of southern Bulgaria, northeastern Greece, and European Turkey. His earthy and stirring photographs explore the concept of otherness within this region, in Muslim minorities, villages, and small enclaves located in and around the isolated Rhodope Mountains of Thrace.

A photograph is not created by a photographer. What they do is just to open a little window and capture it. The world then writes itself on the film. The act of the photographer is closer to reading than it is to writing. They are the readers of the world.
