Author: Connew, Bruce;
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.

"Lal’s words and Connew’s photos will cause readers to pause and seek out the complicated stories of the people they meet on their travels." —Islands Magazine (January 2009)

"Connew’s work combines haunting images with a text that is poetic, elegant, and moving in its clarity. There is a power and persuasion to his work that even the most scholarly and responsible analyses cannot match." —David Hanlon, University of Hawai‘i

"The social commentary embedded in thesevisual images and in the text, which provides fitting local and historical context for the photographs, would be of great interest to those working in South Asian and Indian diaspora studies, Pacific studies, postcolonial studies, cultural studies, visual anthropology, political science, and development sociology." —Elizabeth DeLoughrey, Cornell University
