Yannis and Evgenia Chios Island

There is a common history between the people of the island and people who live in the neighbour city Cesme in Turkey. Although there are conflicts between the politicians of the two countries, the people of the two nationalities get along well with each other. During my visit to the Avgonima village which is locatedon the west coast of the island, I did not reject the invitation of this family and visited them. Their children are living in the mainland of Greece due to economical reasons. Yannis and Evgenia are able to see them only on national festivals and summer holidays. I took a photograph of them on their bed which they have shared together for long years, after listening to their stories and spending pleasent time with them
