Where do we come from? Where are we heading? where do we belong? This series, part of a larger project, deals with migrant crisis in Greece. At some point, the human flow of migrants has turned into a bottleneck of people, leaving the migrants hanging, stranded, having no home to return to and no place to go. Greece has become a flashpoint for the migrant crisis in Europe over the past year. More than 1 million people illegally crossed into Europe in 2015 alone, with some 800,000 of them arriving via Greece. Most of the migrants were coming from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq but also from other countries. They are fleeing wars and violence in their home countries in hope for a better future.
