Europe: The Stars are us (Alexis Tsipras for MONO magazine)
A portrait of Alexis Tsipras leader of Syriza (Greek Left party) and Greek PM hopeful for MONO magazine in Greece. Tsipras' face is made out of stars (both European and leftist symbol) and people waiving flags (both national and politican symbol).
The obvious message is that Europe has to rediscover the values of a human centric democracy. My hope is that leaders like Tsipras could help towards this direction.
