This photographic collection, infused with warmth, spans almost fifty years. It celebrates the islanders and their environment, and reflects on disappearing traditions and values in the face of materialism and pop culture. The work portrays the islanders’ spirit of perseverance in the face of adversity, their humanity and dignity, their wit and humour.
