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. In place of famous landmarks, stray cats under rhododendron bushes and old men clutching fresh baguettes, it is comprised of abstract action shots, quiet moments and more.

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.
