In February and March 2022 I choose five Greek islands (Kos, Leros, Chios, Samos and Lesbos), where the new secluded and gated camps for migrants were being or had just been built, to illustrate some articles for a monographic issue of a magazine.

Over there, migrant persons are kept for an indefinite and suspended period, waiting for their refugees status applications to be accepted or rejected. Forced to survive invisibly in the meanwhile.
