Photographer's Note

Greek donkeys tend to be smaller in size than the donkeys we see in the UK but are often used for agriculture or to provide 'taxi' services for tourists around narrow, steep streets, often with inadequate shelter, rest or water provision.
It is one of the most recognized images of Greece: a donkey carrying an elderly villager along narrow, winding streets or dusty country lanes. But it could soon be a snapshot of a bygone era.

Greece's donkeys are disappearing fast. If current trends continue, experts warn, they will have all but vanished within the next two decades.
