Ellie Papadimitriou’s relationship with photography derives from her love for painting. As a member of the Asia Minor Refugee Settlement Commission and an associate of the Centre for Asia Minor Studies, and equipped with modern cameras, she follows the settlement of the displaced as well as the natives in land and coastal settlements.
