Dead Toys Society: A Tumblr Blog Documenting Discarded Toys on the Streets of Athens

Alexis Efstathopoulos started photographing abandoned toys found in back alleys all over the city of Athens, Greece as a way of documenting their last days on mean streets, forsaken by their owners and forgotten by society. The project titled "Dead Toys Society", explores the idea of distant memories and times of lost innocence. "The dead toys society started rather randomly one day when I photographed a toy thrown in the street " says Alexis Efstathopoulos, "Apart from the visual effect, what I liked most was the symbolism. Toys associated with past memories and the loss of childhood "
