Nomuka Island, Kingdom of Tonga
In the spring of 2016 I spent seven weeks on the tiny island of Nomuka in the Kingdom of Tonga. I photographed about 80 family portraits and spent the remaining time photographing life on the island from a documentary perspective. This included in-depth essays on church, weaving, kite flying, school days at each of the three schools, and farming. Upon returning to the U.S, I spearheaded a crowdfunding project which fully funded books and prints to be mailed back to every family on the island.
