Backed by a 2004 J. William Fulbright grant, New York-based photographer Kristina Williamson spent over a year on the Greek island of Kythera. Emigration away from the island has left many homes vacant or abandoned. The project examined the interactions between tradition and modernization among those who continue to live in Kythera.

This image is part of “One Year on Kythera,” a photography exhibition on display at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars in Washington D.C. through August 21, 2009. More Information.
