The reality that we hide behind closed doors comes to light for a few days through a photo exhibition that moves people at the Piraeus metro terminal.

The "Hidden" photo exhibition, featuring images by award-winning photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur, among others, on the treatment of domestic animals by humans and what happens behind the closed doors where they live, is a co-organisation of A Promise to Animals and STOP.

Erietta Kourkoulos Latsis, its founder and president, speaking at the 5th Marie Claire Power Trip about her love for animals, said: "I don't know where it came from, it's not family anyway! I happened to be born with this love, empathy, which I think is not limited to humans or animals.

"If you open your heart and can imagine yourself in the other person's place, this is a natural continuation: Just as I can imagine myself in the place of a woman with infertility, so I can imagine myself in the place of an animal that does not have a voice, no way to defend itself."
