Abstract:

During a visit to Greece, artist Jim Pavlidis and writer Megan Backhouse decided to explore in words and images the ambivalence of Greeks who migrated to Australia between 1954 and 1990, with some deciding to return permanently to their homeland. Interviews reveal that these people returned because they always intended to do so, or because they craved the simplicity of village or island life. However, they always missed the lifestyle of where they were not. These stories succinctly encapsulate the universal human experience of migration. Jim Pavlidis's sensitive portraits of these people appear alongside their stories.
