Chapter One was photographed in Zimbabwe and Kenya in 2020, Chapter Two in Bolivia in 2022. SINK / RISE, Chapter Three was photographed in Fiji in 2023. The people in the photos have all been badly affected by climate change, from extreme droughts to floods that destroyed their homes and livelihoods.

SINK / RISE is the third chapter of The Day May Break, an ongoing global series portraying people and animals that have been impacted by environmental degradation and destruction. This third chapter focuses on South Pacific Islanders impacted by rising oceans from climate change. The local people in these photos, photographed underwater in the ocean off the coast of the Fijian islands, are representatives of the many people whose homes, land and livelihoods will be lost in the coming decades as the water rises. Everything is shot in-camera underwater.

In his book The Practice of Everyday Life, Michel de Certeau describes the city as a text shaped by the people who walk in it daily. A vast text we write with our steps but cannot read – “the networks of these moving, intersecting writings compose a manifold story that has neither author nor spectator (more…)
