The great and tiny homelands of the Pontiac Greeks who continue to live in the countries comprising the former Soviet Union are diverse. Most of the people feel that they have two countries: one of their real life, of their labors and of their childhood, and one of their ancestors, of myth and of their hopes and expectations. Some have moved many times, usually against their will and, in some cases, they have acquired more tiny homelands in their life.

What connects the people I photographed is their love of Greece and their need to live in a country that will not turn them away because of their nationality.
