Summary

"Indians first arrived in Fiji as indentured laborers in 1879. Since the Rabuka coup d'etat in 1987, and three subsequent Fiji coups, Indian-Fijians have been emigrating from the country in earnest. Stopover is a haunting suite of photographs by New Zealand artist Bruce Connew from the tiny Indian-Fijian sugar cane settlement of Vatiyaka, taken during seven visits between June 2000 and November 2003, placing an extended family inside the story of migration. Connew's narrative captions and a story by Brij V. Lal take the reader to the heart of an embattled life."--Publisher's web site.
