The photographs from this series are uncovering the «refugee crisis» theme, but they differ from that stereotypical image, high-energy, chaotic and full of movement, depicting the journey of refugees, wearing neon-orange life vests, to the new lands in small boats afloat on dark waters. Myrto showed her alternative view on this topic documenting women in refugee camps in Greece, with their babies, the reason to keep going to their dream of a better home, born or just awaited.
Myrto notes that while these women are in transit — their former homes destroyed, their future homes undetermined — they are stuck. And she wants to focus on the incredible patience of those women in her photographs. Instead of taking a portrait of a woman in a room or against a backdrop, Papadopoulos would have her stand in the refugee camp or in the environment right outside of it. She wanted to show that transit, that pause with the help of that natural environment. The women are neither here nor there, neither home nor away. They're moving but standing still.
