The ''RAFT of LESBOS '' documents the plight of the migrant crisis. It renders the geography of human despair following those who fled their countries after the outbreak of the civil war, making their gateway to Europe.
Lesbos, one of the prettiest Greek islands in the Aegean, heavily influenced by the weights of the Greek Economic crisis, makes not only a short distanced step and a frontline to the European gateway but also a temporary recovery zone for immigrants out-washed and abandoned to its beaches seeking to organize their routes to developed European countries.
This migration wave, perhaps the greatest after the IIWW, combined with the socioeconomic difficulties that weigh upon the local inhabitants renders Lesvos a ‘ship in distress” phase to phase with a strengthened humanitarian crisis.What end one should foresee upon this trajectory? A restless gaze records and traces this question over the swinging European landscape.
