Elska is a project centered on traveling around the world, meeting some everyday local gay guys, and introducing their city to our readers through honest photography and personal stories.

It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it! The latest issue documents a trip to Athens, Greece.Below, photographer Liam Campbell shares exclusively with GayCities a selection of photos along with a bit of behind-the-scenes commentary about each.My trip to Athens was full of unforgettable moments, but the top of that list came courtesy of Andreas.

He told me to meet him at Syntagma Square, bang in the center of town. As with most Elska photoshoots, I assumed we’d take a walk in his chosen area and snap pics as we explored.
