Turkey and Greece by Thomas Prior, a photographer based in New York City, is a travel photo series. Yet it doesn't capture the cliche moments most vacationers are used to.

Shot for the January/February 2014 issue of Afar Magazine, Turkey and Greece by Thomas Prior provides people with a genuine glimpse into the daily lives of locals as well as what one can expect in terms of adventures, souvenirs and more. It is not easy channeling the personality of a place, but Prior has done so with flying colors. People are given more reason to visit Turkey and Greece.
